Blizzards and Blooms
Happy December 31st!
The last blizzard of the year is still
raging outside my window....
I was going to be brave and venture out
for some live shots.
But, Sall quickly talked me out of it.
He's so sweet!
So, here's our view to the west at 10:00 a.m.
I know, it looks like it's dark out!!
We aren't getting all that much snow,
it's just blowing sideways and making
visibility a real problem.
It will be interesting to get out and see
all the drifts when it's over!
Meanwhile (back inside),
I'm really getting anxious for
my amaryllis to open. It's getting closer!!
A little sunshine would help I'm sure.
It sits on my kitchen windowsill,
where we monitor it daily while doing the dishes.
(My winter excitement!)
I love having amaryllis in the house in January!
It's the best way to get my flower fix,
Spring time is a long ways away!
These were some beauties
I grew from previous years....
Even a white amaryllis in the middle
of winter is beautiful!!
I'll be keeping you posted on this year's beauty!
I've forgotten what color I bought,
so it'll be a surprise for all of us!
Now it's nap time...(so I can stay up till midnight).
What are you doing New Year's Eve???
