Amaryllis Beauties

I have [patiently] waited 15 months for my amaryllis bulbs to bloom. They finally have and they are spectacular!

Amaryllis is one of my favorite flowes. I admire the elegant leaf structure which is an excellent bed filler, as well as the tall, slender flower stalk which create mini focal points in the garden. Rather than forcing blooms indoors during the winter holidays, I prefer to have the large, showy, red flowers accent my spring beds. Is there any prettier jewel?
