Amaryllis (pronounced /ˌæməˈrɪləs/) is a monotypic genus of plant also known as the Belladonna Lily or naked ladies. (from Wikipedia)
This plant is in the guest room (Torrey's room), and it is in resplendent beauty right now, so I had to post some photos of it. I find it amazing that in the "dead" of the winter the house plants can bring forward such beauty and delicacy with just an occasional watering. There is something sensuous about the large blossoms, even if they are a bright red, which suits me at this time very much!
