Ohhh, those Dutch Folks,
I have a bone to pick with them. When we were in Amsterdam I made a special effort to make it to the famous flower market to buy bulbs. I was really excited to get 2 amaryllis bulbs.
See what color the flowers are supposed to be…. dark blue/purple
See what color the flowers are, red and white. So disappointed.
I can’t fault the health of the plant. This plant had 2 stalks, one had 4 blooms and the other had 6. Since they were so heavy I decided to cut them.
They have been cut, in water for over two weeks now and still look very nice. The plant they were cut from is sending up another bloom. Maybe it will be blue? The buds on the other plant are just starting to open. Fairly sure they are red and white too.
Anyway they look pretty. Very nice next to these
The 5 Euro box of strawberries. That are tasty.
The other bulbs that I bought, very unique daffodils, are just starting to pop through. Let’s hope they are worth the amount of effort it took me to get them.
