Fading Fast

Slowly the blooms dried but for me still have beauty with their darker antique colours. I don't find the leaves attractive enough to photograph so will let them do their thing before it is time to cut them away and confine the bulb to darkness until it shows signs of life again.
Thanks Pen for taking up the Christmas amarillys mantle.

Relocation, relocation

A second bid for freedom was discovered on wednesday morning so a larger pot and more compost was needed. Tucked in up to the neck this time - no more bare shoulders for this gal!

Four flowers.......

......and second bud up among them, ready to burst.
