Amaryllis

Our amaryllis is blooming! We received this plant two years ago from my mother-in-law. The blooms are absolutely stunning. I found myself taking lots of pictures of the blooms today. I will share a few here.





Check out theses long anthers! I read that removing them will increase the life of the blooms because it will prevent pollination and therefore seed set. I just can't get myself to do it. I just love how they look coming out of the flower!
