January is a lonely month...there are no big festivities as in December or cute holidays as in February. Unless you have a birthday in January then it is seemingly long.
When I was at Target the other day I saw some Amaryllis on clearance and thought I would pick one up.
this is the one I chose, a light pink color, the only other choice was red and I always end up with red. Time for a change.
it comes with everything necessary...a nice ceramic planter, the growing medium (dirt), and the bulb. This one was already sprouting in the box.
These babies grow pretty darn fast, the one up top there was about 2 inches after it was planted and the one below, measured a week later, is about 5 inches.
I will measure it every week and we can watch it grow up and bloom together...just a little ray of sunshine for an otherwise drab January. And hope that spring will come soon!
