Amaryllis tree

I can't stop looking at my amaryllis tree! It's not actually a tree, but a decoration made of cut flowers. There are nine stems all bunched together in a pot filled with florists' foam and topped with glass marbles. The stems are gathered with a big bow just below the flowers, and to keep the stems straight I have put bamboo sticks inside. It looked like a modest little thing to begin with, but as the flowers (there are at least three to every stem) have started to bloom it has formed into this huge globe of white flowers - Isn't it stunning?
