The kids and I were shopping on the weekend and we came across a plant-it-yourself Amaryllis in a box. It had the little black plastic pot, the Amaryllis, and two little peat pods. The girls and I planted the bulb and now we wait for it to take root and start to grow.
On the weekend the triangle-pointy-top-thingy (I believe it will be the flower) was green, over the past day and a bit its changed to a pink and will eventually be the red flower - or so I think. How can you tell that I really don't have a green thumb? I wish I did, I'm learning, but I'm pretty clueless when it comes to plants, flowers, or almost any kind of greenery.
I'll post some pictures over the next few weeks of the Amaryllis' crazy growth (unless I kill it before then!).
Thanks for stopping by - see you tomorrow.
