Another Amaryllis

While shopping today I found another Amaryllis plant.  This one will have white flowers and it was already planted for me.  How could I pass that up?  It's still small, but I will watch this one as it grows too.  I also bought that little Poinsettia in the background.  The coloured bracts are pink with a white patch down the centre.

The first flower of my red Amaryllis is totally open.  The stalks have grown very tall and it is top heavy at the moment.  I am going to transplant it or just put the whole thing in a heavier pot so that it can't fall over.

I thought of buying a poinsettia today but then remembered that there are two birthdays yet to come. I know my daughter dislikes having anything Christmas before her birthday next week so I held off on the purchase. The other birthday is the week after so I guess I can wait a bit.
I wish I could find an amaryllis that's already planted. Yours is very pretty.

Pretty, and a couple of weeks ahead of ours! We always end up staking them, because they still break at the bottom of the stem and fall over otherwise. It's nice to have something fresh at this time of year!

These flowers are so very thankful! Should get one soon!
