The amaryllis are beautiful, SS, I've never had one, but a couple of times when I saw the bulbs in the stores have been tempted to buy one for myself. Reading your post made me think of my orchid - Pingo, before you leave for Texas, tell me when to expect any signs of new stems etc, would you please? I have 3 very green healthy leaves that have stayed after the flowers/stems died back. At one point, G.T. did cut back the stems, I see no signs of them this morning, but as I say, the green leaves at the base look very healthy. What and when should I expect any signs of added life ?
Harry out there this morning, didn't see him yesterday. I think he's gone back under the shrub, perhaps of hopes of coming in, but with the hair loss on his leg, I'm leery. Googling pet md tells it could be disease of one kind or another. 13 year old Cheerio doesn't need to be exposed to that. Hoping Cat Lady can raise someone either in the house she saw him at, or at a neighbor's to find out just what their status is.
Princess, not sure which day you were going back to work, if you have started back, how is it going? Such cold mornings to have to go out. I'll head out today for a few things, but not until near noon when it's the warmest. Streets here don't seem to iced, but looking out the window I can see crystal drops hanging from branches on the cherry tree, not dripping yet, so still solid ice. Beautiful with a bit of light shining through them.
Left a list of things I want to take care of today on the kitchen table. If I don't write them down, the day gets away from me without ever getting to them. First is breakfast, and I'm thinking French toast. Seems like tomorrow will be a good day for beef stew, so may pick up some stew meat today, and finally get to make another dish of the Spanish Cream for myself, and a batch of scones. GS asked when I was making more. I think his father is off today, so may get them made this morning and then delivered a little later when I go out.
Hope everyone has a good day.
