The second amaryllis to bloom this year is ‘Apple Blossom.’  It’s almost my favorite!  I cannot remember the name of the one that opened first this year.  It was a variety that I had to search out at the Philly Flower Show a couple of years ago, and now I’ve forgotten it’s name (no label in the pot either!)…

A few signs of spring in the greenhouse!

We have an Apple Blossom in full bloom right now, too; it's breathtaking. But Brian is SURE that it was red last year, and has changed! Eight-year-olds think they know it all....
