Inside Out In Regent Square

Today we had one of the largest snowfalls we have had in years. Over nine inches. The visual difference between the inside of our house and the outside is pretty extreme.

This Years Amaryllis

Stamen and Stigma

I always wondered why there was one of the stamen looks different. I figured it was because it had no pollen attached to it. Maybe it was defective. I knew that the stamens where the male part of the plants reproduction system.

Turns out the one that looks different is not a stamen. It is a stigma and actually part of the plants female reproductive system and connected directly to the plants ovary. Learn something new every day!

First Amaryllis In Pittsburgh

We have grown Amaryllis in the past but have never photographed any for some reason unknown to me. We also have never had one since we returned to Pittsburgh. They are beautiful spectacular blooms. We bought this one late in the season and it is a little short but the the flowers are magnificent.
