I thought I'd share with you my amaryllis in full bloom. All four buds opened up on Saturday.
I love how the light shows through the petals.
And there was a bonus to this.
I used 4 dogwood twigs to make a 'fence' around
the amaryllis to keep it from falling over.
You can see it a bit in this photo.
Well, imagine my surprise to see some of the old leaf buds on one of the dogwood starting to swell and bloom. There are five of them.
See the tiny leaves? I'm not sure what the green cluster is. Perhaps a bloom? I will let it grow and see what happens and let you know too.
I had this happen one other time. I put some dogwood sticks that I had cut in November into a vase of water in March and basically forced them to grow buds.
The temperatures have moderated considerably this morning. It was -18C at 7:00 am and now
at noon it is -3C. Going to hit zero this afternoon.
It's just a tease though. This happens once or twice a winter here for a day or three then it's back to normal cold and snow.
I'll enjoy it while it lasts though.
Have a great day!!
