Exciting days in my garden, not to the extent of dealing with wasps in inconvenient locations, but new flowers:  Several years ago I purchased Amaryllis belladonna seeds from the PBS seed list, from among several hybrids that were offered that year. This year the first flower has appeared and will be fully open soon, perhaps as early as tomorrow. Right now it looks very like the old pink-flowered A. belladonna bulbs from my mom’s yard, moved more than 10 years ago, but it may be darker in color. There’s a patch of white and a patch of white with stripes, if memory serves, but no sign yet of flowers from those young bulbs.
