Amaryllis Waits For No Man

I normally don't forget to pot the Amaryllis bulbs in early February, but this year I did. The bulbs spend the winter on a shelf in the garage after being removed from pots in October. They need to rest for several months before being re-potted for another cycle. I forgot them until the other day when I was in the garage, I looked at the shelf and darned if one of the bulbs was laying there sending out a flower stalk. I don't want to fight the will to live so I quickly potted all the bulbs and gave the insistent one a prominent spot next to the Poinsettias and Pineapple. It looks happier already.
