Christmas Amaryllis???

On New Year's Day--looking for something to "watercolor" I spied my Amaryllis (that was supposed to bloom at Christmas). It's somewhat behind, I think! It's supposed to be kept in a south window (for sunlight and warmth) which we don't have too much of this time of the year. So I painted it to show how it looked on January 1st. We had snow outside--but not too much sunshine! In fact, for about 5 days in a row, NO SUN at all! I had a "little talk" with Ammy and she seems to be growing a little taller now :-) Maybe I'll even get 2 blooms....I'll keep you posted!

It's a week later and the leaves are just getting longer and longer...no sign of a "bloom stem" yet! I'll keep watering and hoping. :-)
