Red Lion Amaryllis

My shop of choice? Target. My mission? Clearance items. I love when major holidays are over because that means all the seasonal items go on sale! I found this awesome red lion amaryllis bulb kit from Target on clearance for $8! I thought having the vase/pot was good enough! I’ve never had a green thumb so I figured I would kill this plant before it bloomed. To my surprise, I have nurtured it to fruition! I planted it around new years and it is currently blooming. It is so beautiful! I can’t believe I nurtured it to this point! I just wanted to share (brag) about it today.

150126-01Wish I took a picture of it when it was just a bulb in the soil. Look at how tall it gets! I am in awe each time I come home from work.

150126-05I’ll probably share again once the other ones bloom as well!

    Doesn’t it feel great when your plant finally ‘grows up’. That’s why I love gardening or use to, cuz each new day is a surprise. Yours is gorgeous. Congrats!

      Thanks N! I agree! I think I’d like to try my hand more at gardening. I think this kit made it easy but gosh, it is just so rewarding! I hope you get back to gardening one day!

    This is sooooo pretty. I love bulb flowers like tulips, callas, daffodils, etc. This red one is so beautiful. Grow more! Grow more! Nice job Jenny!
