They've bloomed...

Here are the first shots with my new camera. This is the amaryllis we planted November 11, exactly one month ago. It has a second, unopened stalk that I didn't get into the picture. And here are the paperwhites. I'm afraid Martha's tip about the 10% alcohol solution didn't work...they are still quite long and leggy...
...but still quite beautiful, and they have a wonderful fragrance.
I had three bulbs left over that I had stashed in the refrigerator, so they should bloom for New Year's and prolong our enjoyment of them.

re: your comment....
there are several hit counters for blogs out there, the one I use is at statcounter.com, after you create your account, they'll give you the code to install it on your blog.
there are some really detailed ones out there, but that's the one i use and it works for me, i don't need to know THAT much about where my visitors come from!
