I did a science project with my 5 year old this winter/spring. We planted my two Amaryllis bulbs and measured their growth every day – (for full results see my other blog, A Fine Day For an Epiphany. http://http://afinedayforanepiphany.wordpress.com/2012/03/ - there are three posts about it – four if you include one similiar to this one today – that you can check out!)
On the most exciting day we measured four inches of growth! These blooms are the culmination of our project…and a very lovely one indeed.
