It Bloomed! YAY!

Every year I get an amaryllis bulb the first week of October. The last two years I bought a bulb from Lowe's, planted it, and nothing. No flower came up, just one lonely green leaf. This year, I bought my bulb from Aldi grocery store and it bloomed! I keep the plant outside when it's sunny and bring it in when the sun goes down or when it is rainy (like today). This flower is so Christmas-y to me and I like it better than poinsettas.

Next year I might try my hand at paperwhites since they need no soil to grow. That's my kind of plant!
