My green thumb


I love tropical, exotic plants and flowers. This is an amaryllis, a flowering bulb native to South Africa and related to the lily. It is commonly called a "naked lady". I thought I would share this beautiful flower with you. I bought it two Christmas' ago. This is the first time it has bloomed since I got it. I was so excited. I kept cutting it back and cutting it back because it would grow but not bloom. Finally! It seems to love my bathroom.
