Pink and white Hippeastrums blooming

Finally some of the Hippeastrum bulbs that I managed to recover have flowered.

I was quite surprised as the bulbs are still smallish and definitely nowhere near the size of the ones I had before when those flowered.
 I have about twenty bulbs which are still small and might take a while to flower. But I assure you of one thing the are definitely worth the wait. Although these ones are clearly suffering a bit.
