Angel: While we are learning Yoga with Mrs Skittles, Mom has been playing in the yard.
Kirby: I hope I get to go outside when we get home.
Angel: Mom has these red flowers in the front of the house. They are called dwarf Amaryllis.
As the name suggests, these beauties are smaller than the large flowering Amaryllis, but by no means less impressive. They are an ideal complement to their larger cousins, or stunning on their own. Although each flower is smaller than a large Amaryllis, the Dwarfs produce up to 12 flowers per bulb!
Kirby: They are very pretty. and old!
Angel: What Kirby is trying to say is that Mom has had these plants for 40 years. She has dug them up and moved them every time they have moved. Her Mother set them out when our Mom was a kid. Her Mom still has a few but not as many as we do.
Kirby: They bloom in September and some times in late August. The first fall rains bring them up. After the pretty red flowers are gone, the leaves come up. Mom keeps talking about separating them so they will make even more.
Angel: While Mom and Dad were outside they saw this big butterfly. He sat still a long time and they took lots of pictures. I will be glad to get home. The tour has been loads of fun and so has being with so many friends, but I miss Mom.
Kirby: I have enjoyed the tour, too and all the mancat's to talk to. It was nice to see the lady cats, too! There are some really pretty ladies out there.
Angel: We have learned a lot about how other furblings get along. We see that we are fairly normal!
