When the stars, moon and sun are lined up, amaryllis become Easter lilies on the Gulf Coast.  Because of the climate, they can be planted in the ground and take care of themselves.  Some will even reproduce.  So, when Easter comes later in April and the spring time is warm,  amaryllis will bloom beautifully just in time for Easter.  Needless to say, this year Easter was early and spring was cool.  The amaryllis celebrated May Day instead.

    Love that first one! So pretty. I don’t have amaryllis in my garden. I am really missing out. This year’s weather has been so interesting. A delay of blooms from their regular Easter to May this year is incredible.
