I am always amazed by Hippeastrums (known as Amarylis).  Most of the year they are somewhere between unremarkable and tatty, and then Spring come s round and from the fat bulb comes a flower head with such depthe of colour that I have never been able to do it justice.  This is a Hippeastrum papilio – a Butterfly Amarylis – which I painted some years ago.
