'Minerva' with late afternoon sunlight ...
'Minerva' having a second blooming for the year in summer. I had thought this was a 'Piquant'.
A ripe seed pod!
They ripen very quickly after bloom fades.
Just about ripe and starting to open.
A bargain at $2.50 but then went and got a bunch more for a dolllar each.

Amaryllis - Minerva - "naturalized" in a pot, blooms just opened (mid April 2013) - Sunlit from the back
Amaryllis 'Minerva' closeup of first flower from a forced bloom indoors. Stunning IMHO.
Taken when all the flowers from the first sheath opened.
My best photo yet on the second flower stem out of a very strong bulb that was purchased online. Eight flowers total. Very pleased.
