1st bloom


Today is a day to celebrate. I have my first bloom on the amaryllis and my Christmas decorations are all down now and in the garage ready to put back up in the attic! Yipee!
Jean asked on comments if cats eat amaryllis and I did a little research and if they do it seems that it can cause nausua and vomiting so I guess it is better to keep this plant away from your kitties. I have 4 cats myself but I keep this plant up high and where the kitties cannot get to easily. I've never know them to bother one of these plants but better safe than sorry with your kitties.

I'm so jealous that you've gotten all your decoration put away! I had most of mine down, when I was stricen my the longest running sinus infection ever, and I'm embarrassed to day that my tree is still lit and fully decorated in my foyer. I feel like such a slacker. On amore cheerful note, I just love amarylis. I plant one every year, but I also have a very realistic silk one in a pot, so I can enjoy it year round. Thanks for sharing your photo. Have you ever planted paperwhites?
