Amaryllis BudsAmaryllis with one Flower Open….Amaryllis Flower - Close up

I’ve had the wonderful experience of watching my Amaryllis plant flower this week. These plants are such giants, and kinda remind me of the plant from “Little Shop of Horrors” when they’re still in the bud stage. Then they produce these big gorgeous flowers, kinda similar to lilies.

I’ve been taking pictures of it as it opened up over the week. Appreciating its beauty. I just took some of the pictures off the camera to show. I had to include the one with my dog’s nose in the picture.  It’s just like him to be in the middle of things….

Yesterday, I took it up to my studio and drew/painted a watercolour of it.
