Happy New Year Everyone!
I tried to leave everyone a Merry Christmas message on here last week, but Yahoo didn't think I should. So . . . I am hoping this will work.
This is a picture of my Amaryllis that I just found out wasn't an amaryllis. It's a Hippeastrum. ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hippeastrum ) It's is a 3rd generation plant. DH's grandfather gave a bulb to MIL, and she gave us a few from her plant (well . . . 4 or 5 actually) at the end of this summer.
Anyhow, one of them flowered already. Didn't expect any flowers from this planting until next year. I was happily surprised.
