Amaryllis Baby Star and Mushrooms

Here is my first ever amaryllis...I had to rescue it from a bin in the garden department at the hardware store since it had started to grow. The first bloom appeared Dec 21 and when we returned today from an overnight stay at my daughter's house I found four blooms...and more to come on the other stalk! Then my task will be to see if I can have it survive for next year.
And here is the present I bought for my son-in-law...except I was so excited about it I had to get one for me now that I'm home I need to go set up my box...we did his yesterday at their house.

That's a nice amaryllis, Leslie - but I can't believe you never had one before! I hope your family has luck with the mushrooms.

I've been gone for awhile and have realized I'll never be able to catch up with everyone's posts - you sure had an impressive blooming day list and I liked your peachy Thanksgiving cactus. The kids with tomatoes photo was wonderful!

May 2008 be a good year for you and yours,

Annie at the Transplantable Rose

Your amaryllis is gorgeous! Thanks for the preview of what mine will (hopefully) look like!
