A Spot Of Flower Fun

It is really cold here this week and it is so wonderful to see the Amaryllis Christmas gifts coming to flower and giving us a hint of warmer times to come. I haven't seen this variety before - it is called "Dancing Queen" and is a real beauty and a double. I can never decide which colour I like the best but must admit that nothing can compare to a bright red Amaryllis!

I love amaryllis! This one is really beautiful. A little different than the typical all red.

This is beautiful, RedPat. Did you nurse it from bulb to bloom?

Oh my gosh, I love this. It makes me think of peppermint. And, I love the name "Dancing Queen". When I worked on that contract in Chicago, our group of people mostly from Arizona all had nicknames for ourselves and my nickname was Dancing Queen.
