Joannes Jones of Townsend received this pretty white amaryllis from a friend, and it turned out to be the gift that just kept on giving. 'It had two stems of flowers and then surprised me about three weeks later with a third stem of flowers ? 11 blooms in total! What a wonderful winter treat.''
What's in bloom by you?
We're done with our amaryllis photos for this year, but we're hoping to keep Green Thumbs going year-round, so send a pic of what's flowering inside or outside your house to email@example.com with "Green Thumbs'' in the subject line, along with your name, city and a line or two about it (tips are always welcome). We'll share your colorful shots from your kitchen windowsill to your perennial garden to your vegetable patch each Sunday on our Dirt page. Closeup shots tend to work best, and no people in the photos, please.
