Wednesday may be wordless, but those plant names are a mouthful

Wow you are blog-alive again! Do they bloom just immediately when the snow melts? Our amaryllis are now starting to dry the leaves and start dormancy. They will bloom again almost simultaneously after the first heavy rains in the dry season.

Hi Lily: Lovely blooms! I've missed you! Are you starting to see spring bloomers poking through?

These are beautiful, Lily. The striated pattern and colors remind me of candy cane.

@Carol,

@Andrea,

Amaryllis/Hippeastrum are indoor bloomers here. What I do is order the bulbs in the fall, store them and plant them one by one so I can have succession of blooms all winter. Come spring time after danger of froze is past, they will be brought outside, give them tlc until fall so they will bloom again in winter time.

For pics of bulbs see my flickr album:http://www.flickr.com/photos/the_suburban_gardener/.

@Beth,
Thanks! I am too busy with my work and since it is winter, I am afraid I stopped posting regularly. Yes, I do, there are a lot of daffs poking through and a couple of lily noses are up and tons of those minor spring bloomers.

@Juan,

Thank you!

@Bom,

Thanks. I see what you mean on Misty. :)
