Last year I bought three large Amaryllis bulbs in glass vases. I gave two away and kept one for myself. It was so generous and giving in flowers it made us all think we had green thumbs.
I recalled the day I bought the Amaryllis. We were Christmas shopping and I couldn't make up my mind whether to buy the Amaryllis or not until SO drove away. That was when I felt a little twitched in my heart about leaving the Amaryllis forever. I asked SO to stop the car, ran in, and purchase three instead of one!
