Heart of the Amaryllis

Amaryllis are a Christmas plant in part beacuse of the wonderful velvet red of their blossom. They do come in different colors, the one above was red and white. Above is a picture of the heart of the flower. I like the star shape that formed. The straight lines are the stamen, and the filagree at the edges are the stamen shadows intertwined. The stamen curve at the end. Everyone have a wonderful Christmas. Enjoy your families, near or far.
