For the past two or three years my uncles from Pittsburgh would come down to visit us in the spring and fall. Each time they bring an amaryllis for all of us. This past year, due to the coronavirus, they sent a care package to me of six bulbs and a gift card to purchase pots and dirt then distribute them to each family member. It was my absolute pleasure to do this. Now my bulb has finally bloomed! This is also my dad's favorite flower and it's his birthday month so this is like the loveliest gift for me.
