The sky's the limit!

Shoots from my three amaryllis bulbs are reaching for the ceiling. The lovely planter basket, complete with bulbs and moss to keep the soil from drying out, is a Christmas gift that gets more spectacular by the day.

There will probably be blooms on all three by the end of January, like this one from 2011.
