I think we’re in the final days of Amaryllis Watch 2021 for this beauty. In fact, I’m hoping it will bloom this weekend while I’m home to enjoy it. The variety is Velvet Nymph and White Flower Farm describes the blossoms as deep garnet petals with a tidy flower-within-a-flower form . It sounds completely gorgeous!
Also completely gorgeous? A long weekend. I’ll see you back in this space on Tuesday.
Enjoy! We’ve got two blooming this weekend too!
Bloom soon, Velvet Nymph! You inspired me to get my resting amaryllis bulbs out of my root cellar and water them for reblooming. I’m heartened by some glimpses of green already. Have a good long weekend, Carole!
Oh wow. I can’t wait to see it!! Happy Weekend, Carole!
Oh, that looks like a stunner, Carole! I’ll bet you have blooms this weekend. Enjoy! XO
I love the deep red you’re waiting on. I have a glorious naranja (brilliant orange) and one called Apple Blossom that is soft and pink and just lovely. They certain help me get through January!
Well, it certainly looks as though it is about to burst forth! Maybe you will wake up tomorrow, and there it will be! Have a great long weekend.
gosh … that bud holds so much promise! as does the three day weekend. enjoy it!

Beautiful! Our amaryllis refused to bloom and has been banished to our garage. Maybe next year?
That’s going to be a stunning, and I hope you’ll share a photo with us when it finally does open!
oh my gosh. The description of that ALONE is pure pleasure!
Gorgeous-mine is making very slow progress this year.
