This morning, a beautiful amaryllis bloom welcomed me as I walked into the kitchen. I received it about 2 weeks ago from a friend.
In the past three days, I have watched it go from one bud, to three, then having one open over night, with another beginning to open today. I think it will be fully open in the morning. The third bloom will probably be open by the end of the week.
This is a view of it with the sun shining on it, and the background in shadow.
What a pleasant way to end the year, with pretty new blooms.
Here's the pot holder I started yesterday.
