I planted both of these bulbs on
the same day in December. They looked to
be the same size bulb from the outside
but who knew what was going on inside.
They were placed in the same spot by
my kitchen sink so I could keep
them sufficiently watered in an easy way.
Turns out they are like people. They
grow up at their own pace.
I'll bet if I were still in school I could
write a whole essay on how people are
like amaryllis flowers. Instead I'll just ponder
on how much my name
Marlyss is like Amaryllis...especially if
you take away the A.
