Watercolor Wednesday | Waiting and Watching.

in my study
Yesterday's trip to Whole Foods was mostly about picking up amaryllis. We came home with two. The one in front is labeled "white" and has already started to sprout (I took that as a good sign; I also like the fern it's planted with). The one in back came fully ready to pot (the package included a pot and potting soil) and is a "Red Lion". Charlie and I made quick business of getting that second one potted.

But it took me a while to find a good location for the two pots. The directions say "full sunlight"; I'm not sure there are many (any?) places in my house where that's going to happen. But on a sunny day, this chest gets good afternoon sunlight. We'll see.

Thank you, Bonny and Kym for the encouragement!

Now the waiting and watching begins...

  1. Excellent! It's exciting to see so many amaryllis popping up this year. They bring joy and beauty and a bit of magic to the dreariest part of winter. (And Charlie will be amazed!)

  2. Ooh, lovely! I don't know many people with full sun in the winter, but amaryllis seem to do the best with whatever they get. Hope your blooms happen when you need them most.

  3. Both of mine are Red Lion -- because that's all that I could find!! Mine are not in full sun, either... they're in a SE room, so get good morning light. It's worked in the past!

  4. Full sun? What is that? Here in Pittsburgh - grey is our winter color of choice! I am hoping that my sweet pep talks and any ambient light will suffice!

  5. So pretty. I don't have any this year, but I bought some (like your Red Lion - coming with the pot, etc.) to give as gifts this year. In the past I have really enjoyed having them bloom in January and into February which always seem to be the darkest months to me.

  8. I know they will be lovely when they bloom, so nice to have a "helper" too.

  9. Good luck! Will be looking forward to see yours in bloom. I'm carefully tending a Christmas Cactus and keeping my fingers crossed...
    Cheers~
