Amaryllis, Up Close


One of the flowers I always try to take pictures of whenever I am at the weekend market of Lung Center of the Philippines was the amaryllis. I just love its red color and how big the flower is! I arrived late that time, and most of the amaryllis were already gone, but I was able to see this one, and almost immediately, I lowered myself to take a picture of it.

I used to have an amaryllis plant in our garden, but after I lost its leaves due to rains, the bulb never sprung again. :(

I posted a photo similar to this one a few weeks back for Macro Monday...but mine was pink....this one takes my breath away. Such a deep rich red.

My R T is "lady in red"...a portrait of my daughter. Come by and view her if you can find time, I'd love your visit!!
