“Two More”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana
Flowers seem to be just exploding out around here, and two more varieties have opened up. I’ve been out of town for the last four days, and I was so afraid I would miss some of the flowers that are just opening up. Thank goodness, I didn’t. While several plants had started blooming, the flowers were still in good shape when for me when I returned.
The white amaryllis are looking so good. It took a few years for them to bloom after I planted them, and this year is the best blooming these lovely flowers have had yet. I have these planted with other white flowers (Iceberg roses and Marie Dolers, a white Louisiana iris).
Also blooming right now is the Appleblossom amaryllis.
Not all of the Appleblossom amaryllis have bloomed this year, and I am not sure why. Last year they all bloomed and made a gorgeous display. I guess even plants need some time off every now and then. Here’s hoping that next year will bring back the abundance of flowers from these amaryllis that I had last year.
I’ll have to post photos of the other flowers that started blooming while I was gone tomorrow because I am still tired from the trip and need to go to bed. I just had to get these two on the blog because I think they are my favorites, and I wanted to share them with you.
