Amaryllis Bulb

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.

Daffodil Bulbs

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
