This all started with a store-bought Red Lion bulb that unexpectedly put out four flowering stalks when it finally broke dormancy. Promethean_spark helped me with what was going on (the Divide or Let Be thread in this forum).

Well, the first of the side stalks is about halfway bloomed out....
It has *five* blooms rather than the four I expected. Two flowers are fully open, and the other three are a third to a half open. I've never seen your basic 'florist' Amaryllis with more than four blooms per stem! Didn't know it could happen!

Two other stalks are bursting blooms, and at least one of these stalks looks like it might have five.....

Never seen anything like it........ Boy, is this Amaryllis destined to be a truly pampered pet outside over the summer!!

Haven't got easy capability to take and post photos, but I've already promised our greenhouse manager that I would get him some when it really got going. I'll tap a friend who has the technology. I will try to send some here, as well.

It's amazing! I would say I was speechless, but that can't be true. This post is too long. *Babbling*. Yep, that's the word for it....

To find your roots, get your hands in soil. To live fully in the present, imagine your garden and make it happen. To see all of reality, spend some time sitting quietly in the garden.... Then get your hands back in the dirt.
