4.22 candy stripe

Before we move on to spring blooms, it's time for one more look at an Amaryllis. This was the second stalk of the last Amaryllis to bloom and it was quite something to see. The weight of it, between morning and evening, caused the bulb to rotate within its pot until the stalk was completely horizontal. I took it off and put it in a vase, and returned the bulb to the upright position. I think it will be able to finish recharging before the leaves die off. I'd like to see if I can get these new bulbs to rebloom next year.
