A Flower Pot Full of Love

 
When thinking about this flower, love comes to mind. Every Spring, the Amaryllis showers me with these jumbo blooms..... asking nothing in return.
 
 
The amaryllis bulbs have been growing in the same pot, for many years. It withstands our hottest days of 108 degrees. Even our coldest winter nights of below freezing weather, doesn't seem to bother "my old friend".
You may find it difficult to believe, but it is never fertilized. I must admit, I occasionally pour the last bit from my coffee mug into the flower pot.
 
 
 
No fancy pot......just a faded plastic gardening tub for these glorious blooms.
 
 
I'm sure you can see why I call it "A Flower Pot Full of Love".
