Bargain Bulbs

Back in about January, I treated myself to four new amaryllis bulbs. They were on clearance, and I was in desperate need of flowery cheer.

I ordered three different species and found out I could get free shipping if I ordered one more. I picked a fourth bulb that was similar to what I already have. Might as well spend what would have been shipping on another flower, right?

They seemed to take a really long time to bloom, and when they did, there was a degree of excitement as well as a hint of disappointment.

All four bulbs have produced blossoms nearly identical. All are very similar to a bulb I already have. I wanted variety. And yet, how can I complain when I get such beautiful blossoms? One bulb consistently produces more than four blooms on each stalk. That is absolutely incredible! And I have beautiful amaryllis flowers in late April. Who could ask for more?!?
