♥ red  

I planted an Amarylis flower bulb 
on New Year's day
and it has produced the most wonderful flowers.



Something so simple turned into something beautiful.


I have it on the kitchen windowsill and everytime I look at it
it makes me smile!



Happy Friday to you all.

I love your Amaryllis! My Grandmother used to grow prize winning ones. Every time I see one in bloom I wish I had remembered to do the same. Now I'll be thinking of your beautiful red all day!

Beautiful! One year I got a bulb in a box before Christmas as a gift.It got carried to the basement accidently.The next year I send my husband to bring up a bag of silk flowers and it was bloomed out beautifully.
