Opening slowly

The amaryllis is slowing opening.

First thing this morning

Please forgive the lighting. As you can see, the buds were just starting to push open. You couldn’t really see the potential color at this point or if there was to be one or three buds.  Around lunch time, we were able to catch this picture:

At this point, it looked like we might get two blossoms and perhaps the would be a pinkish, maybe dark pink color. I shut the blind to try and get a better picture than the morning.

Just a few minutes ago, I was able to get this picture:

Now there are three!

Now there are three!

I can’t wait until these open to see the actual color. Hopefully we will see more by the end of the weekend and can share fully opened pictures. Then next week DS will have to write up his lab report for this and we will transplant the amaryllis to the front bed with the roses and herbs.
