Happy New Year ! December was so busy that I did not have any time to post pictures on my website, so I am glad to be back in my routine. Each year I force various varieties of amaryllis and paperwhite bulbs in water. I always have a lot of fun watching the bulbs burst out into full flower during the Christmas holidays. Here were some of my favorite amaryllis bulb flowers from this season.
