It Bloomed!!

Do you remember that amaryllis bulb that I planted back in January and shared with you here?









We saw it grow a bit here.












And most recently I shared that it looked like it would actually bloom here.












Well, it bloomed!  IT BLOOMED!! 
It's beautiful!

It's that incredible pop of color that I hoped for!

On another note, it looks like my amaryllis bad luck has gone else where.  In fact, it looks like my MIL got the non-bloomer that I usually get.   I'm sorry I pasted the jinx to you!

Happiness is waiting a lot of time for a very beautiful show of much needed mid-winter color!

So I don't remember when you planted this back in January - but I wish I would have because THIS IS BEAUTIFUL! And I want to copy you and have lots and lots of these amazing flowers in my backyard right this moment. Man, I don't think I could be more jealous of you right now. Seriously.
