This year there was nary a Amaryllis bulb on my sill. I brought one in from outside but ... nothing grew. I went out to buy a bulb- couldn't find a red. I bought a spider plant instead to help clean the air. Dropped in to the grocery store last night - success, Red. Wrapped it in a bit of burlap. Whew, a tradition I did not want to skip. (ps the burlap wrapping idea came from Donna at Funky Junk).
These beauties are from past successes.
