My amaryllis continue to re-bloom! Normally they would be offering a wonderful respite from the gray days of March. Instead, they are sharing the glory with the first cuttings of daffodils from the garden. Really, 83 degrees today has me worried. I mean, 83 should not be a high temperature in Springtime period! I'm afraid the Spring flowers will be over in no time, rushed along by this ridiculous heatwave...or worse. I am still worried about another freeze, and unknown ruination of everything that is leafing out and budding right now. A late freeze that took almost all of our hydrangeas still haunts me, and I do not want a repeat.
Let's hope we drop back down into the 50's or at least 60's soon (I'll take a low in the 40's, as well).
|Huge blooms on this tall and stately 'Apple Blossom' amaryllis.|
|I love the multiplied blooms reflected in the mirror.|
|Another is beginning to shoot up a flower stalk. I am certain one of these should be all white...we'll just have to wait and see (I'm labeling everything this year, by the way).|
|This 'Lady Jane' hasn't grown as tall as the other.|
|It is, however, the perfect size for my night stand.|
|Such amazing markings. I wonder if any more will "wake up" before they move outside for Summer.|
