The Little Amaryllis That Almost Didn't

My amaryllis opened today, planted in late November for Christmas, a bit late but beautiful. At first I thought he was a dud- two weeks after he was planted, there was still nothing, not a single green sprout, which is unusal for an amaryllis. Usually you can just stand there and watch them grow. Well, almost. And the cat hasn't bothered him, which is also unusual because he's pretty sure we grow houseplants as salads just for him. I'm going to go stare at my amaryllis a bit longer before I start the Things I have to do today even though I'd rather do anything else list.
