Do you remember that HUGE amaryllis bulb?


Bought from the supermarket for just £3, as I have done for many years (and the price has never risen), I thought it would be the same as always.





But the bulb was HUGE.



Well here it is now...


Not all the blooms from the first flower head have opened yet and as you can see there is a second flower bud to follow. The stem length is almost 24 inches. I have had to move it from the mantle shelf as it is just too large!

I love it but it does take over the room somewhat!

Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "The Earth laughs in flowers" - I think it must be guffawing here!

L.x.
