Very pretty. Like a striped candy cane. As always, I'm happy to see more pics of them.


Gosh, your newly made double is fabulous, Kathleen! I still don't think of the size of Fairy Tale as a miniature anything. Am I being too literal here? HA


I like how you are willing to sacrifice a bloom for science :) Kind of like the daffodil bulb you cut in half :)
Miniature or not those are some very pretty flowers.

I saw one taller and one shorter Amaryllis in a planter together that made a stunning display. I can hardly wait for next Christmas.

When you visit Blotanical, click on the Help tab and read the FAQ and watch the video on picks. You'll be an expert in no time!

:-) Oh, Kathleen! I have just done a double-take... probably due to the fact that we've been having such cold, snowy, blowy (is that a word) weather... that I'm thinking "wildlife." When I read your post title I immediately thought of doe - a deer! And wondered if they were taking smaller bites? Your amaryllis is beautiful. It doesn't matter, does it, that it's shorter??




Oh, how pretty! I got my first amaryllis just the other day. It was on 75% off sale rack at Walmart. It is red lion. They're very nice.


Big or small, they are sure striking. Love the color.

I just love your Amaryllis shots- so beautiful! Next year I'd like to try bunching a few different varieties together in one pot- it would be really beautiful!

I think I actually prefer a smaller-flowered Amaryllis, having had to resort to awkward propping devices in the past. lol Both are beautiful.

-7 -- now that's cold. I hope you are at least getting some sun with those frigid temperatures!
