A garden is the best alternative therapy.

This is my first Macro Monday post in months!  I’m excited to have a beautiful subject to share with you.  For the first time since the bulbs have been in our possession the past two years, our Amaryllis (a.k.a. naked lady) bloomed this past weekend.  Hope you enjoy!  Please click on the photos below to view in a larger size with much more detail.  As always, check out more Macro Monday posts over at Lisa’s Chaos using the link below.

    Naked Ladies are the flowers from the true Amaryllis plant, aka. Amaryllis belladonna, Brunsvigia rosea, and Belladonna Lily. These are beautiful flowers but they are of the plant, Hippeastrum hybrid.
