I have been feeling down with just a week and a bits snow and am appreciating my Amarylis so I can understand why you love them


Very easy on the eyes:)

The colors are just lovely. I can't decide which I like best.


What a glorious array of blooms! I am surprised that they repeat. Will have to keep an eye on mine.

Oh, I can't wait to see your new Amaryllis once they bloom. I like photos from the side of flowers because they give a better idea of the total shape :-)

DEfinitely a good survival secret. Chocolate and good coffee or tea also help.


I personally would never tire of looking at them. Kathleen the Pink Surprise is gorgeous! I have enjoyed amaryllis so much this winter and I am so glad I bought so many ;-) My wallet not so much.


Wow! I think you must have more Amaryllis' going than anyone I've seen. They sure do seem like a happy way to survive winter. I do love the side view of 'Exotica' too!

I have to say I don't think I could make it through many Colorado winters. We lived in PA for 3 years and spring just didn't come fast enough.

I think 'Pink Surprise' is my favorite so far!


You must rig a repeat for next year and every year. Three months and not so much as a sight of grass would make me berzerk I tell ya! Those amarylis are lovely and sure do bring the inside to you.

Kathleen, I cannot believe how beautiful these amaryllis (and photos!) are. :-) I'd be smiling all day, every day! Btw - I hope your Queen of the Prairie goes crazy this next year. It worked at becoming established this year, I think. At any rate... if it doesn't like where it's at, I may move it. Thanks again for being so generous!


I can just imagine your home filled with pots of dirt everywhere, while you swear that soon there will be amaryllis flowers to enjoy! Flowers are the key to my survival also, but not just amaryllis. I buy any flowering plant I can find. Right now I have cyclamens and mini roses in bloom. I think a kalanchoe will be next!


Very nice to view! Thanks! Especially when my amaryllis are still, well, bulbs!
