Into the Woods


Into the woods it went.  A lonely Amaryllis.  How did it get there?  Did the mother plant send out seeds?  Probably not as the bulb is really big.


I have a feeling it was transplanted by that bushy tailed rat we call a squirrel.  It was probably burying the Amaryllis bulb for a snack on a cold winter’s day.


Most of the Amaryllis in the garden aren’t blooming any more, but this one is sure happy in the woods.


In fact, it is so happy that it has started to reproduce and two more are on the way.

  1. I see the same Amaryllis here in weird places – you know the bulbs are toxic, unless you are Japanese and know how long to leave them in a bag in a running stream (not kidding) Not sure what happened to the squirrels.?

    Never question a gift.

    Wow, it’s amazing that this amaryllis ended up in the wooded area. I tend to think of amaryllis as a short-term house plant that is kept indoors during the cold winter months–and is never set outside where a squirrel might get it–but it sounds like people further south put them outside.

    What an amazing thing to find growing in the wood, a bit like coming across a giraffe. How lovely though.

  5. Wow. An amaryllis in the woods? Remarkable.
