Blooming Beauty

My first amaryllis opened this morning. Every year  become enchanted with them; this year is no exception. This bulb is one I have had 4 or 5 years now and it produces gorgeous blooms every year. All of my bulbs were started the same day and old faithful here was the first to produce its flower.

And Arabian Nights moves along its pat to flowering as well. The beads arrived today, silver lined crystal. I know they will look like starlight twinkling in the night.
