Appleblossom, Again

Last year when I repotted, I took an offset off my big Appleblossom Amaryllis and potted it separately. It spent the winter in the greenhouse, went outside with the others when the weather warmed and bloomed last week.

I put it in the house for Mother's Day and returned it to the greenhouse for watering. I like walking into the greenhouse and catching the fragrance -- unusual for an Amaryllis to smell so good.

Strobilanthes is still blooming in the greenhouse. I like the combination with the chartreuse of Bird's Nest Fern. Persian Shield in the garden has commenced new growth. We rarely see blooms outside.
