Wilburina and the Amaryllis

Hi, it's Klu, the Famous Bloggin' Bear.

When we got home from our Christmas bacation, we did some playin' so that Wilburina would feel like she was part of the family. Mrs. B gave us an amaryllis plant. An amaryllis is a pretty flower, but it starts out as a bulb. So me and Wilburina helped Big Mummy plant the amaryllis bulb. Here's a picture of Wilburina before we started. Isn't she the cutest pig you ever saw? She has a bouncy, oinky voice.


The dirt for the amaryllis plant came in a funny hockey puck. Here's a picture of Wilburina doin' some 'vestigatin'. 'Vestigatin' is what you do when you're a curious pig and you want to find things out. Wilburina is a really curious pig. I think pigs are really smart. She likes finding things out.

The directions said to put the dirt (the dirt that came in a funny hockey puck) in the pot and add water. We did that and it started growing! It grew and grew till it was big enough to plant the amaryllis bulb. Here's some pictures of Wilburina watching it grow.





I'll take a picture of our amaryllis plant when it has pretty flowers, but Big Mummy says you have to wait six or eight weeks. That's a long time.

Love,
Klu

PS. I took a photo of Wilburina for the sidebar. Do you like it? Isn't she the cutest pig you ever saw?
