For the past several years, I have been planting Amaryllis in the winter after Christmas. This year I was a little late planting three of them. My plants really weren’t doing much in the beginning , making me think they were duds. Then suddenly they began to grow; thus, the wondrous journey of viewing their various stages of growth began.
One plant was a late bloomer, deciding to bloom after the other two plants. I was actually quite delighted about this, as I could then enjoy more beautiful blooms for a while longer. I was also happy to have one last chance to sketch these blooms before they all fully opened.
I recently purchased the gorgeous book in the above photo, with a gift card from my sons. It makes a beautiful coffee table book with its large size and glossy pages. The title is “Botany for the Artist” by Sarah Simblet. It’s a joy to peruse!
Over the course of several weeks, I took photographs of my Amaryllis plants both in my studio and kitchen. Here are a few to brighten your day!
I hope you enjoyed browsing through this presentation of Amaryllis in various stages and lighting. Now I will have to wait patiently for next year to grow them once again.
I hope your week is rolling along smoothly. We have a blizzard warning in place for tonight and tomorrow. Honestly, I think I will go into hibernation for a while and wake up when spring blooms finally arrive. lol
