About 16 years ago a nice lady that I once worked with gave me a beautiful Amaryllis/Hippeastrum bulb, deep velvet red in color. The bulb did well in a pot at our Tennessee home for many years. When we moved from Tennessee to Florida back in 2003, I took the bulb with us and planted it in our daughter yard for safe keeping until our new house was built. I cared for the bulb for 7 months while we lived there. After we moving into our new house and living there for over a year I remembered I left my Amaryllis bulb in our daughters front yard planted between some shrubs. I couldn’t wait to get down there find it and take it home. It took me just a minute to find the poor neglected bulb and dig it up. The bulb looked fine for not having any care for so long. Now 10 years later at our new home here in St Augustine Florida this Little Bulb That Could has produced many new babies. She now has produced 16 new bulbs and grandbaby-bulbs total. I think she likes it here. I think I’ll name her Super Grammy!
