I picked up another Amaryllis at Walgreen Pharmacy early in June.
The foliage and the buds were pale with only a hint of pink.
I didn’t have much confidence that she’d turn out too well,
But the configuration of the plant was good.
At least, she wasn’t She-Devil Red…
It has two stalks and ten buds on one bulb!
The stalks are well-proportioned and sturdy
No, long, lanky stalks and leaves here.
I set it on the porch
And watched the blossoms open.
To my delight, the blossoms are lovely shades of pink on white.
It is a lovely Asiatic Amaryllis as the card on the plant said it would be.
The color of the pink and white blossoms deepens as the blossoms open.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen an Amaryllis with so many buds
Or one that is quite as compact as this one
I’ve enjoyed this Pink Lady
And I did not have to wrestle with Old Faithful Lens to photograph her.
(You recall the story of She-Devil Red…)
(Please forgive the mix of present and past tense… Chuckle…)
I’m cleaning out my draft cache, and am not motivated to change much!
