Nice overview! And just in time to remind me to pull my Amaryllis from the garden. (but it is hard to deny them some more time to grow)

So good to hear that you rescued you bulbs from certain death! I tip my hat to you.
Our destiny in life is to discover our gift. Our purpose in life is to give it away.

I agree
Any day you wake up on the sunny side of the grass is a good day.

I can never get them to rebloom for Xmas.
Thanks for demonstrating that it can be done.
