Tiny orange cutie/beauty rescued from Lowes
This got lost in another thread...or no one cares!! But I do, so I'll share her with you!
Let's look again at the photo that was taken at about 5PM Sunday night:
Here it is just 26 hours later!! The one on the far right is opening up to be a very small, beautiful (even if it's upside down) orange bloom. It's not dark red/orange. It's the color of a gorgeous sunset!! The color of the sky when there are just the right amount of puffy clouds and the rays of the sun hit it just right. It's a beautiful color...and I am very glad that I could rescue this little amaryllis from the certain death that awaited it at Lowes.
The photo is slightly fuzzy, but it's more to show the color than anything else. Under the florescent lights she is particularly brilliant. And...those are my 5-month old seedlings in the back...planted in late June. The Jewel crosses and the Limona crosses are doing particularly well.
Here's what my cutie/beauty rescued punk looks like tonight! With some natural light/some artificial the color is still remarkable (to me at least). She is ORANGE! Any guesses as to "What" she is??
