I bought an amaryllis bulb kit at the garden center. I planted it yesterday and I hope to have a brilliant red flower by Christmas. I got rid of some aging houseplants and have decided to force bulbs this winter so I have some living plants in the house. I also have ten paper white bulbs to force. It's sort of fun to watch them sprout, grow, and eventually bloom.
I bought 40 daffodil bulbs to plant and I haven't gotten to plant them yet! Today, I swear. Before braving the cold and going out to plant them I did a quick watercolor sketch. I want to draw them when they come up (fingers crossed) in the spring. :-D
