A Final Forced Amaryllis Bulb

Yes, it's the Christmas Amaryllis.  :)  I was at the Home Depot several weeks back and there was this lone bulb on sale, a reject that no one had picked up during the mad holiday rush.

I felt a bit sorry for it.  So instead of buying a small flowing plant or cellophane-wrapped bouquet of flowers that would last only a brief time, I bought the bulb in hopes that it's amazing red flower would arrive on Valentine's Day.  :)

A little late for V-day, but here she is:

I think watching the bulb take root and slowly grow was really as much fun as seeing the final huge flower.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!
