Surviving winter in my VH studio!

So last week, we had a large snow storm. The Portland area was shut down -- I didn't leave the house for four days. But I did have this amaryllis plant given to me by a friend for Christmas that has made winter a little more palatable. Check out the progress of the bloom over the last few weeks.

First, here's our snow storm -- eight inches!

First the bulb -- a second one coming later!

Starting to open!

About five blossoms came out from the one  bud -- at least until Lowell knock the plant across the room and then there were four!

Not too bad of shape - considering its accident. Beautiful blooms that brought great cheer! And I still have another bud to bloom later! Great Winter Flower for the studio!
