on my way to the cookie jar last night, i was struck by a stunning plant that kit had placed on the kitchen counter yesterday ... i marveled at it during dinner though the full drama didn't hit me until the house was darker and the lighting was more dramatic ... it's one of 3 or 4 amarllyis bulbs that a friend gave her a few years back ... she dutifully puts them 'in the dark' once a year and they dutifully respond by doing what you see here in the photo above ... occasionally we will even get one with four large blooms at the same time ... click the photos to enlarge them

8 24 .. ok ... now we have three of the four blooms open
