Amaryllis blooming.


This is my first post this year. I was kinda swamped, and didn't have any time to post for a while. It was about a week and a half ago that my Amaryllis started to show some signs of blooming, and now it's in full bloom! It's kinda tall and tipsy, but the flowers are amazing. After it blooms I have to let the leaves die back, remove it from the pot, let it dry out, and store it in a cool well ventilated place until spring when I can plant it in the back yard. I hope it will bloom next year. I also managed to make a cool looking Mr Chlorophyll icon to water mark my pictures.

Thank you. And yes, it is a Amaryllis Minerva. I got it from a farmers market over here. It came in a box with a plastic pot and soil. I was so excited that I planted it the same day I got it. It was worth every second of work just to see the extraordinary display.
