Little and Large. Or is it The Odd Couple..? Either way, glad to have these two brightening up the kitchen windowsill today. Looks almost tropical... 🌺 almost! 😉 If I have a piña colada as well, I can pretend I’m on holiday! 🍹 Have a cosy evening flowers 🌸

Well now that it’s dark we can pretend that’s a tropical rainstorm out there and we’llwake to a warm sunny day and we’ll be sitting by the pool with that pina colada. Humph!

Fabulous Rachel, mine is coming along too, not as big as yours though. When I had it a friend told me that it would only flower once. Well this will be the fourth time mine has flowered in two years, so always hang on to your bulb! 😀 @rachelbrooks

I live in western Oregon and I had them planted in my front yard. They came up every year

Dont bin it! it'll come back year after year. I pulled some bulblets off mine last fall and put them in the garden. Don't know that they'll survive but I'm trying it. My main bulbs went into a sulk for being disturbed so they didn't bloom this year.

Wow! Can’t imagine actually having them in the garden Sherri! I wonder if it would come back if I planted it in a sheltered spot in mine...🤔 be awesome if it did! @momasherri

rachelbrooks

I won’t Leslie!! So I think I have to leave it once it’s flowered and I can put it outside during the summer. And then I read that it needs a period of dormancy in the autumn before replanting...is that right? Will I remember? 🙈 fingers crossed your baby bulbs grow! 🤞🏼 @lesliecole49

Bleedin’ Nora! I can’t believe how quickly this has grown and started to unfurl! 😲 Top left was Monday, and the big pic is now...and I thought the bud was just one flower! There’s three on one stem and four on t’other...by my calculations 🧮that’s at least 6 blooms! 🤓 (No wonder I’m head of accounts! 😉😆) the other surprise is it’s s’posed to be dark, vampy red...looks suspiciously norange to me! 🤨 who cares?! Can’t wait til the morra and see more of her! Have a frilling evening flowers 🌸

It's going to look fabulous when they're all out! Watch out it doesn't topple over - I had one last year with fewer flowers but it must have been top heavy and fell off the window sill!

Kinda looks like my Minerva amaryllis and when the buds are big like those the flowers are huge probably have to support them as they get top heavy but sooooo beautiful 💖💖💖😂😍😍😍😍😍😍😍❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

I’m surprised it’s even got this big Sue...I dropped it as I was paying for it at the garden centre, then I’ve knocked it over again since! 🙈 I’ve got it in the corner, leaning against the wall and as it moves towards the light I turn it! So I’m hoping it’ll be ok...the stems are very rigid! 🤞🏼 @lilybee

I think I kept the label somewhere Louise 🤔 I’ll have to have a look, and maybe I’ll tie some string round the stems and tie it to the window handle! 😂😉 I am keeping my eye on it! @louisesimpson
