I know that "Dazed and Confused" is how the saying--and the song--goes. But my 'Sweet Lillian' amaryllis is more dazzling than dazed in its confusion:
This is its third bloom since I bought it back in November 2008 as a present for my grandmother. The first bloom was a lot fuller, but I'm not complaining. It has yet to receive a rest period--or fertilizer--and it is planted in a serving bowl with only pebbles (no actual soil) anchoring it in. Given the sum of that abuse, it is performing admirably, I think!
And maybe, just maybe... maybe this will be the year that I remember to bring it in for a rest, and then pot it up for Grandma. Finally.
