It looked nothing! What kind of a Christmas present is this? Who gave it? What did we give them?

Not a rose, a rose that might smell so sweet... But another name neither of us could remember. It sat... under the Christmas tree, underwhelming, unwrapped.

It sat, and sat, looking like a luxurious coiffure of pubicity. It hardly improved the decorations, so we hid it away.

A week later, a giant phallus rose from the forest. Bigger... and bigger... and bigger.

And then... overnight... an eruption of pinky white at the tip. Nothing premature about it!

An Amyrillis takes time.

    Thanks Drew. Yes, it should probably be called an Amarwillies.

    I have one on my kitchen window sill. I shall never look at it again in the same innocent way!

    Sorry Marion! Ours is absolutely glorious (so I beg it’s pardon too!)
