Amaryllis and Penguin

 

amaryllis and penguinAmaryllis and penguin – not words that go so often together. I was given this plant for Christmas, put it in its pot, watered it, nothing happened for six weeks, then overnight there was this triffid growing several inches a day, with a multi-beaked head, and then this lovely creature, filling the February windowsill with its colour and its eight red flowers, four on each stem. A couple of leaves right at the bottom are struggling to catch up. I think the person who gave me this deserves an amaryllis card.

Odd Flower – Anyone Recognise This?

This strange plant suddenly appeared in the shrubbery. It comes straight out of the ground, long stem, no foliage at all, about three foot tall; and we don’t have a clue what it is. Can anyone enlighten us?
