My beautiful red Christmas amaryllis has gone by. But! Almost as soon as the last blossom on that one died this gorgeous one bloomed. I was lamenting to Bonny yesterday how hard it is to truly capture an amaryllis in scope and beauty in a photograph. She challenged me to try so I am sharing the photos I took yesterday.
This was given to me by someone at work and it was in a plain box so I truly had no idea what color it would be. I love that it is so completely different than the red one – less Christmas-y and more Valentine’s-y, if you will.
It’s a fabulous shade of pale pink, almost peach, and the center of each flower is soft yellowish green.
All four buds are open right now, on a very long stem. I had to actually put it on the floor in my dining room in order to capture it best.
Like any amaryllis, it will be gone too soon so I’m very glad I was able to get these photos and share them with you all.
It’s definitely brightening my days right now.
