As I mentioned, one of our amaryllis plants has blossomed on our kitchen windowsill.
So when it's too cold to go outside and take photos, it's time to break out the macro lens and focus on the houseplants! (It was 35º F when I walked Olga yesterday afternoon.)
The curve of this petal reminds me of Eero Saarinen's TWA building at Kennedy Airport.
And thankfully, we have more flowers coming! The other three plants still have buds. Looks like this one will be the next to bloom.
As you may remember, I struggled with how to care for these plants during the winter. Interestingly, the one that's blooming now is the only one that kept its leaves through the season, and the only one we kept watering because it still had foliage. The others lost their leaves, so we let them go dry and put two of them in a dark, cool room, as the experts recommend. But it seems letting them go dormant only slowed them down.
