Amaryllis .... Pt. 2

In November I had posted about buying an Amaryllis bulb on a whim and finding out that there was much more to it than I had imagined. Amaryllis ... Pt.1

On Christmas day I looked over at my lovely green stem to realize that it was close to blooming. Wow had time flown so quickly? New Years morning I was presented with sheer beauty and a feeling of happiness because I knew my Grandpa would have been tickled to see it's lovely, velvety petals that had opened during the wee hours of the night. The best part is knowing that not only would I get to enjoy 4 blooms,  there was a second length of wonderful goodness that was promising more.   Good things come to those who are patient enough to wait.  One thing I learned from my Grandpa ... patience.
