I took the first amaryllis photo with my iPad. It may be the first and last photo that I take with the iPad, but I thought that I would try this first post just using the Blogger app on the iPad. I love my iPad but I'm not a fan of it for photography. It's just to awkward to use to get a great photo. Next time I will try to bring in an iPhone photo or perhaps one from my new camera.
I am a fan of Amaryllis. I ended up with two bulbs this year. This one was an impulse purchase from Countryside, the night of their wine tasting event. A week after I planted it, we received one as a parting gift at a friend's 90th birthday party. That bulb is moving a bit slower, which means I should have blooms for the rest of this long winter.
