Really Random Tuesday #60: Fleeting Memory Winner and Amaryllis Revisited

Seems I am a rhyming fool today!  

This Really Random Tuesday post is short and sweet.  Please help me congratulate petite.

Petite has won my giveaway for a mystery caper book, Fleeting Memory, the first book in the Enescu Fleet series by Sherban Young. Congratulations, petite!  My other readers might be interested in the assortment of book giveaways listed on the right side of my blog.



********************

Many Tuesdays ago, I posted a picture of an amaryllis that wasn't really an amaryllis.  It was a hippeastrum, apparently, according to my favorite online encyclopedia, Wikipedia.  Now here's a photo of my new "amaryllis" plant in bloom.  I'm not certain that this is an actual amaryllis either, even though it was labelled as an amaryllis in the floral department of Major Market (a very nice supermarket in town).  Amaryllis is amaryllis is amaryllis--or maybe not.

    1. Petty, this plant has been very easy and requires almost no care! After the flowers are gone, I'll try planting the bulb outside.

  4. Oh my, your Amaryllis is lovely. When my son was 2 or 3 I took of picture of him holding a pot just like this. He looked so adorable. I think I gave him the photo though.

  8. Congratulations to Petite.
    And yes, I would say that is an amaryllis!. My sister, who is a fantastic gardener and houseplant expert, gave me several amaryllis in past years. Aren't they awesome, you can practially watch them grow, and then they send out that wonderful flower. I have had pink one, orange ones, a fabulous red and even one that was white and green. I love them too.

  9. Congratulations to petite, and what a lovely shot of your flower! I would love to have something so colorful and beautiful in my house, but my cats tend to eat all the plants that I bring in. But now that you have the photo up, I can just pop over here and check it out when I need a splash of brilliance in an otherwise ordinary day :)
