Amaryllis Against the Snow

I took Lady Jane outside for a few minutes, and I was surprised at the difference in her colour.

Much more intense!

Wow. That is really gorgeous. It is sensual, too, that warmth against the snow.

Hi Judy
Your Amaryllis is very beautiful. A lovely colour and I love the texture of the petals too.

Re your question about Kangaroo Paw, this one grows to 80 cms / 31 inches, but there are smaller varieties. I have seen it in blog pics of the US, so you might be able to get it in Canada...

I want to touch, and feel how soft it is, very lovely Judy.

BTW yes we can grow orchids out of the house but on a shaded area.

Wonderful shot and an amazing Amaryllis bloom.
