Description The word amaryllis means 'to sparkle' in Greek-Latin. According to legend, Amaryllis, a shepherdess, pierced her heart daily with a golden arrow to prove her unrequited love for Alteo, a gardener, and flowers bloomed wherever her blood dripped to the ground. Today, the large showy flowers symbolize pride, beauty and determination.This amaryllis was a gift I gave to a friend for the Holidays this past season. The flowers surely are determined, proud, and beautiful...you see, they now grow in a vase for the plant toppled over in its planter from being top heavy. Hence the bulb begins its growth journey once again.Photographed in Bullville, New York, composed in Photoshop.
