More Amaryllis and Methi

There was non-stop rain in Southern CA for 6 days last week which is very unusual. It was referred as the storm of the decade. I was worried about my Amaryllis bulbs because if they sit in too much water, they will rot. So far out of 10 bulbs, 5 have sprouted. Hoping that the rest will grow soon.

My methi plants are growing well, I will be harvesting soon.

'Neon Rose' Amaryllis: This is in a pot.

Exotic Star Amaryllis: This one is in the ground, I wanted to experiment how it fares in the ground.

First Amaryllis in bloom!

I am excited to report that my first Amaryllis bloomed a couple of days ago. More to follow soon. The variety is called Pasadena. Look at the scarlet red blooms with white flashes on each petal, Isn't it beautiful?
