Christmas Amaryllis - Waxed - 2020 Edition
The calendar says 2021, but I'm still talking (and posting) about our 2020 Christmas Amaryllis. This year (a year unlike any other), we didn't go all-in with Christmas bulbs. In fact, I'd say that if it wasn't for Nat saving the day, we would have likely just skipped our Christmas flowers/Amaryllis altogether. We didn't go to Wannemaker's for their Holiday Open House. And I haven't been in a hardware store in months. But, thanks to an impulse buy at Trader Joe's, we have this small, unnamed Amaryllis bulb in a wax base that Nat brought home in mid-December. I'm posting this in January, but this photo is old. I took the photo below on Christmas Eve and you can see that the flower was just beginning to emerge. I'd say that this one got pretty.close to being right in terms of timing.
