The Amaryllis Gets a Close-up

All of my plants are blooming at once. The amaryllis won't last long, but it's one of my favorite plants. Once it gets started, it grows very quickly, which is fun to watch. It's so tall that it will bend toward the sun at quite an angle if you don't turn it around every day.

Its flowers remind me of a naturally-occuring phonograph.

This particular amaryllis is tragically imprisoned indoors against its will. I would show you a picture demonstrating its sorrow, a very moving picture, but Blogger has decided to censor it by malfunctioning every time I try to upload it. I guess it's just too much even for the internet.
