Last year’s Amaryllis Watch was so exciting that this year I vowed to record its growth daily.
Well. That was unrealistic. But I have managed to take a photo every other day (or so).
The photo above was taken today when the Little Darlin’ was about 5 days old (measuring age from the very first hint of green). If last year is any indication, it will be 18-24 inches tall by this time next week. Or maybe not. The bulb was sorely mistreated this year. Someone should call Plant Protective Services (PPS) on me. Or maybe not. The flower stalk growth is beginning a full two months earlier than last year.
[I believe the first sign of growth occurred on Candlemas which seems appropriate.]
