    Beautiful! I recently planted out an amaryllis that was a gift. I had it indoors, and its blooms were stunning as an indoor plant. I hope that next year it will bloom outside in the garden as yours has.

    As always, I am catching up on blogging and have been looking at your posts from the last couple of weeks. Your rose garden looks great. I enjoyed seeing the aerial view, and I especially enjoyed the video! I look forward to seeing your roses in full bloom!

    Happy Easter!


    • We wait with great anticipation for the blooms of our amaryllis. I was overjoyed that this variety does so well growing outside and have divided them several times. I always thought they would not thrive planted in the ground. As usual, the garden is full of surprises. Happy Easter to you!

    Gorgeous amaryllis! The color is as intense as a tulip. Ours are just starting to bloom here, which reminds me, I’d better go get a photo before the heat toasts them.
