They came to me with just the barest green showing only about 3 weeks ago, Vic, right around my birthday. It's amazing how quickly they've grown and bloomed. I can't wait for the rest of the show!

Cool! I think I like the Harlequin and Joker the best! (Can you get a close-up shot of Harlequin, please...pretty please?)

Are you smothered in fragrance now?

Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! And I see some deep red peeking from that fat bud to the lower left. I LOVE red!

Hey Shoe, if she isn't smothered in fragrance then something's wrong with her nose. Hilarious!

Shoe, I'll get a picture tomorrow when they are opened up a little more.

I've never had an Amaryllis that had a scent. Somewhere I read that they were bred to be big and showy and the scent was left behind. I just walked over and stuck my nose right in the middle of them, nope, not a scent that I could detect. 'Course I was just outside taking a picture of this magnificent moon tonight so my nose was pretty cold, but no scent do I smell.

Maybe something's just wrong with my nose Sad

That's odd. I've had Apple Blossom & it had a wonderful scent & NOID's which had scent -- 1 in particular which you can smell when you get within 6 feet of it. Hmmmmm.....

OK, if I go over to check the name of that red bud, I'd have to move the cat off my lap. If I move the cat off my lap, he'll pout for hours because I just now allowed him up here.

You do not want to see my cat when he's angry.
This was when I was painting a couple of years ago and he was upset because the furniture was all a mess and things weren't to his liking. I don't want to see this face again.

And then there's this.

He looks like he's imitating Garfield in that first pic! :>)

And yeh, love the flashlight eyes! That is one powerful cat!

Maybe I am thinking of "Paperwhites" that have the fragrance. Could that be possible?

Could be, Shoe. Paperwhites do smell so so so good. Almost too much.

Jazz is my Guard Cat.

"Paperwhites do smell so so so good. Almost too much."

Yep, then that is what I am remembering, especially the "almost too much".

Hope Jazz is respecting those Amaryllis!

Back to work....

But I KNOW that at least SOME Amaryllis have wonderful scents! Or maybe they only smell good when I grow them. (wink) Hilarious!
