Last bloom of the white…

Last bloom of the white amaryllis -- this fabulous plant gave me six huge flowers, starting early December. For future winters, I think I'm going to concentrate on paperwhites and South African amaryllises, the ones that bloom by Christmas.

My Dutch ones are still growing green, but haven't opened yet, and by February, I'm mostly looking ahead to spring, wanting to plant little forced bulb gardens (I have a hyacinth scenting the powder room now) and place tall forced flowering branches in vases (some early forsythia are on my dining table now). I am an impatient gardener.
