July: My, how my amaryllis has grown, as have the flowers around it! Still hoping that a bloom emerges.

The latest news on my lovely red amaryllis: the fluffy and warm garden bed it has called home since May has become crowded with luscious geraniums and petunias – no wonder its leaves have grown so tall!

Still no sign of a bloom, but there is still plenty time, and hope.

Have a very enjoyable summer!
