After all my fretting last week, this past weekend the amaryllis finally committed to making me a lovely flower. Behold, the stem is on its way!
Once things get started, it grows each day, nearly two inches by the end of the week. I see the stem each morning when I come downstairs and I know it bathes in the morning sunlight. We’re in the stretch of February when the daylight is growing by leaps and bounds. By the end of the month, we’ll have more than 11 hours of sunlight a day, perfect for a flower looking to show off.
