I'm loving the weather inside the house where flowers are blooming! My 'Apple Blossom' amaryllis (Hippeastrum) that I've had for two years is finally blooming for the first time. The blooms are HUGE! The flower stalk is one of the taller ones I've had, too.
Most amaryllis have that beautiful pearlescent quality to their petals and 'Apple Blossom' is no exception.
The passiflora has bloomed a second time. I had three 'La Paz' amaryllis bulbs and two of them are in bloom now, whereas one bloomed earlier. I'm not sure why all three weren't in sync. 'Solomon', 'Lemon Lime', and 'San Remo' have all put up flower stalks, so those will be in bloom in a week or so.
Now what am I "Geez, Louise-ing" about? I'll give you three guesses and the first two don't count. You know we have several inches of snow on the ground now, right? Guess what the weather report for tomorrow night and Saturday is? Six to eight inches of new snow!
I just don't know what to say.
