Amaryllis - Saturday


Amaryllis - Saturday, originally uploaded by shersteve.

Dolores and her kindergarten friends were growing this amaryllis plant at Oak St School. She brought it home so we could tend to it rather than leave it at school during school break this week.

This is a good plant to use with a classroom of kindergarteners. The plant grows so quickly. It came home with the two blooms pictured here. It has already added a third. The stem in the background is also starting to show flower color as it begins to expand.

Such a lovely color for a dreary, raining mid-winter day.
