I love growing indoor bulbs like amaryllis because I don't have to be concerned with late freezes like out in the garden. When everything is gray and dead outside they bring a glimpse of the spring to come.
I purchased my bulbs for $5 and planted them around the first of December. They are so easy to grow and when they begin to bloom from what was an ugly oversized bulb, I wished I had bought more to enjoy.

More snow is headed our way here in the heartland!
We've had a few days of record breaking
high temperatures in the 70's which was amazing, however my daffodils and tulips have grown more than usual and now I worry their blooms will be damaged for spring. There is nothing prettier than a bouquet of daffodils on the breakfast table!
I am really enjoying the gigantic crimson blooms of my amaryllis and hoping mother nature gives us a bounty of blossoms in our gardens this spring.
Counting the days until spring!
