Amaryllis

(anyone else think of the Music Man instead of a flower?!)

we have a new friend in the garden!!!


two weeks after we got married we went the Bloom and Garden Show in Franklin (its where we got our beloved hanging basket plants...that tragically got stolen...sad day).  There we also got 4 bulbs. 2 Amaryllis bulbs and 2 Crinum bulbs (very similar to an amaryllis).  So we planted them back in April...

And now...as of Friday...one of the Amaryllis bulbs is starting to bloom these pretty hot pink flowers!

the rest will soon follow I'm sure!

and the great things about these...they are perennials...so they come back each year. every year. and we don't have to do a darn thing!




have you planted any perennials this year? any new ones popping up yet?
