While spring is rolling along on its merry little way outside, we've got some blooming loveliness inside, too! Inside and out, life is good.
As I've mentioned before, I got a late start on potting up most of the Amaryllis, so that means later blooms, too. We are on Round Two with them, as the second wave of blooms has been opening for the last several weeks, with even more to come.
I was pretty excited when my species Amaryllis bloomed for the first time since I bought them three years ago. The bulbs were quite small when I got them, and apparently they are large enough for blooms this year.
'Misty' is blooming AGAIN! That's never happened before.
The one I posted earlier, saying it was 'Royal Velvet,' wasn't (tags get mixed up). When you see them side-by-side, you can tell the difference. I think the first one was actually a very dark 'Red Lion.'
The Hoya is awash in multiple blooms after several months of none.
The Streptocarpella continues to bloom anew.
And the first of several orchids that began spiking several weeks ago has opened. All of them are reblooms!
The meteorologist on our local news just spoke the 's' word. I'm certain he didn't mean it. But just in case he did, it's nice to know I can stay inside and stare at the eye candy in here until the weather comes to its senses again.
