Amaryllis week 7

Amaryllis almost open What a difference a week makes! Now there are clearly three flowers on this stem: rich, velvety and red. They are unfolding away from their discarded and drying coat and getting into opening position.  I think of the flower as ‘bursting’ open but actually, it’s a far more gradual process of stretching and reaching (bit like me getting out of bed in the morning).
