Amaryllis comes again

I love this time of year when I start to see snowdrops, which to me represents the first sign that spring may be on the way. Although I have to say that so far we have been very lucky with such a mild winter. However the floods have been rather a nuisance, and with the current levels of the rivers, they are far from over.

Another indication of spring pending is my Amaryllis houseplant. I’ve had this for just over 2 years now. And each year it has amazed me how it appears to die and then regrows. Initially I had thought I’d killed it, as I’m not very good with plants. I seem to always over-water or under-water. Mostly only spider plants and aloe vera survive under my care.

However I cut the dead stems off and left it on the window sill, continuing to water occasionally and lo and behold, it grew again last year. I have to admit, with everything else going on in my life, I can’t remember if it re-flowered last year. Then once again it died down, but here it is starting to regrow once more.

      Yes I took the photo a week ago, as planning to do the post for last week’s linky but didn’t get time. Already grown a couple more inches.
