All about the Blackbird - GardenBird
My wife has an Amaryallis which has flowered for the last seven years! It gets bigger & better each year & now has two new bulblets coming up. Usually flowers around Easter time & flowers reaches 70cm high. It lives on a south facing window cill all year round in full sun and is kept well watered. After flowering leaves die off & replaced with new ones. Has been repotted a couple of times.
Update: bigger & better. Four flowers this year. Two open, two to go. Now 85cm high.
Me too a Peacock butterfly, yes rhubarb, roses shooting up. Herbs. Primroses spreading, all the spring flowers, nesting birds, bumble bees, gnats! Moss drying up a bit! Had to water the pots. And less traffic, less noise, pollution. wooooo!I saw a butterfly outside this morning. I thought I heard someone mowing but it was a massive bee trying to get past the net curtain, I'm allergic to stings so he wasn't as welcome as the butterfly.
The rhubarb is growing, at least that will be something fresh!
