“Better Late Than Never”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana
Just as most other bloggers have noted, spring-flowering plants here are at least two to three weeks late in displaying their blooms. Usually, by this time, the amaryllis that are planted in the garden have almost finished blooming. But, not this year. The first of the garden amaryllis finally opened up.
All the other amaryllis varieties are just showing buds or buds on short stems, so it will be a few more days or a week before we see those flowers.
I didn’t buy any amaryllis this fall for winter blooms, and I have regretted that decision. Since these flowering bulbs are just about one of my favorite flowers, I always eagerly look forward to seeing their blooms in the garden. Looks like I finally will be enjoying a few weeks of of their beauty.
