Christmas is truly over!

Today the last of the amaryllis died.

You’re thinking, why is this a big deal?

Well a couple of years ago, I came across these beautiful white double flowered amaryllis plants. Since they were rare (I’ve never seen them again) I decided to save the bulbs to regrow them.

Last year only some came out with flower. This year on the other hand, none of them made it 😦 just green leaves, that’s it.

So I have decided to officially throw in the towel on my amaryllis growing abilities (which I obviously don’t have) and I won’t be saving them for next year. I’ll just have to hope they come back on the marked sometime…

Last year. Isn’t it pretty?
