Years ago, I worked with a lady that marked the stem of her Amaryllis in her office every morning with a sharpie and we could see by the end of the day how much it grew - I was 19 and thought it was the coolest thing ever.  So I think that my 5 and 3 year old would think its out of this WORLD to do the same thing!

The kids and I were shopping on the weekend and we came across a plant-it-yourself Amaryllis in a box.  It had the little black plastic pot, the Amaryllis, and two little peat pods.  The girls and I planted the bulb and now we wait for it to take root and start to grow.

On the weekend the triangle-pointy-top-thingy (I believe it will be the flower) was green, over the past day and a bit its changed to a pink and will eventually be the red flower - or so I think.  How can you tell that I really don't have a green thumb?  I wish I did, I'm learning, but I'm pretty clueless when it comes to plants, flowers, or almost any kind of greenery.

I'll post some pictures over the next few weeks of the Amaryllis' crazy growth (unless I kill it before then!).

Thanks for stopping by - see you tomorrow.


  1. Your post reminded me -- my pot with last year's bulbs is still out on the porch. I should probably bring it in and see if I've killed them or not!

  2. Your Amarylla will be beautiful, I remember my children planting our first, oh so many years ago, they grow so quickly. If anyone could have killed one it would have been me and everyone I've had since has bloomed and prospered. I'll be back to have a peek. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I'm visiting from the Canadian blogathon and I cannot wait to see the Domestic Handbag quilt!
