beauty, dipped in silver

20161116_152148Introducing my latest green find. I presume it’s for the holidays. Maybe everyone else is already familiar with this sort of festivity, but it’s new to me and I think its pretty wild. I’ve gotten winter bulbs before (narcissus, or something else small and white.)

But this a Giant Amaryllis, and it’s actually dipped, little wire stand and all, in shimmery silver wax. How jolly is that?

And if the label is to be believed, it will be red as well as giant and jolly. The label claims that no watering is required. This is absolutely brilliant since I shouldn’t be trusted with any additional responsibilities during the holidays. So, for the next several weeks, this unique beauty will be living on my mantel, minding it’s own business, and inspiring carefree, seasonal cheer.
