My heart is broken!

In a previous post I talked about cross pollinating my amaryllis. This morning when I'm up here, this is what I found.

Obviously, two of the three attempts have resulted in seed pods, although the third one - Baby star x Royal velvet - has failed.

But perhaps the strong wind and rain last night has knocked down the pot and broke the stalk. In trying to save the seed pods, I've put the broken stalk with seed pods in a glass of water with a little sugar added. Let's wait and see what will happen.

If only the wind hadn't blown! Now I have to wait another year to try again!

A whole year? Oh, that is just too bad. So sorry.
