Goodness, it's been a while. I've been busy with orders, praying for warm weather, cleaning, praying for warm weather, errands, praying....well you get the idea. It's supposed to be 40 degrees tomorrow and I can barely contain myself. I see us all craving the sunshine and green grass. My cravings are fueled by my primrose binge. They are on sale for 79 cents now at Home Depot, I don't even care if they live long enough to plant outside for that price. Don't judge me because they are sitting in the windowsill without real pots. You can't even see that past the sofa back and I do have plans to repot but I've been busy praying for warm weather.
You have to have priorities.
I also indulged in a few potted green plants, plopped into my pedestal milk glass collection they make me happy. I had these distributed throughout the house but decided they all needed to be in the big bay window where I can enjoy the illusion of a garden.
This amaryllis is there too. You first saw this w-a-a-a-a-y back in December. Victoria brought it home for me and I believe she will now have the duty of always choosing my amaryllis bulb. This little darling bloomed non-stop, with multiple blooms over Christmas and January. I believe I enjoyed 5 flowers the first time it bloomed. When they had all died, I cut the stem back and was rewarded when another stalk appeared. This time there are seven buds that I can see. I have never had an amaryllis bloom like this before.
But I'll take it:>) It's so beautiful and with the sun shining through it this morning it actually sparkles. I wish you could see the way it glistens in the photos.
Oooh look, you can! Right now it's not a Christmas flower, it's a spring flower :>)
In other news, I have been without a kitchen sink for nearly a week now as the counter tops get installed. Do you have any idea how often you use the kitchen sink? *sigh* But it's almost finished and I should be washing dishes and enjoying the new counters by the weekend. Paper plates and microwave to the rescue. It's looking so pretty and I can't wait to finish things up and show you. Lights have been ordered and I am already contemplating repainting the walls. Spring is on the way, I can feel it. Hope you are all enjoying the first signs of spring too.
