Close-up photo of the stamen and pistils of a red amaryllis.

My spirit lifters

My amaryllises are still going strong, but I think this may be their last hurrah for the year. The three bulbs have been providing cheer continuously since the beginning of December. I’m not generally a great lover of red but the weather has been cloudy and I’ve really been enjoying the different shades of red and the way the light plays on the petals.

Red amaryllises in full bloom.
You can see the buds in the lower left corner. The first shall be last.

The one that started the display in early December is also the one that has one still unopened bud. Obviously an over achiever in more than one way!

For Nancy Merrill’s Photo a Week: Red

…and Cee’s Flower of the Day

…and the closeup of the pollen is for Sunshine’s Macro Monday.
