A few weeks ago I purchased two amaryllis bulbs. They were packaged in their own pots. I opened and planted both on the same day. One started growing a stalk almost immediately, and I did a couple of sketches of it. In fact, it started growing two stalks, and one of them is starting to open into the flower. I was expecting a red and white one, from the picture on the box, but it seems to be more pink. I did a few sketches of it in various sized sketchbooks. The other didn't show anything until a couple of days ago. Then I saw a leaf poke it's way through, and then a bud appeared. I decided to sketch both plants together, which required a tall, narrow format. This is in my Handbook Journal done with my new Preppy pen.
