Hippeastrum is a strange word. Sounds like hippo. But Amaryllis... that is a pretty word. Pretty flower too.

I saw the title of the post and thought this was going to be a creative writing exercise...maybe a children's fantasy story or something. It would make a good one. But it makes a pretty nice flower, too.

I love the flowers I'm seeing in this week's WW.

Great photo. I think that if you had taken the one right beside it that was in full sun, it would have been too washed out by the light. This was lovely.

Thanks for sharing!

GORGEOUS!! You grew that?! I'm jealous. My cats would eat it to nibs before it bloomed... My lucky bamboo ain't so lucky.
