Welcome to Delights Day 8 of 365.
Sometimes what delights me is sitting next to the dish towels and tea kettle. All it takes is acknowledgement over a cup of Sunday coffee.
I love this Amaryllis! I bought my little friend at Krogers on December 18th, 2020 for $9.99.
He had one blossom. Three weeks later, I have watched other stalks appear, bloom, wither and make room for other stalks. He now has four glorious blooms and has gotten so tall, I tied the bottom bloom to a wooden skewer so he wouldn’t tip over.
When doing the dishes, I give him a little drink.
When the last flower fads, I have been told to cut the stalk and put him in a sunny window until next fall. A little water in November will bring new Amaryllis blooms and a spot next to the tea kettle.
All that for $9.99 at the grocery store.
