I've been spending time today learning the new PicMonkey - confusing
to say the least - but all work and no play makes Mary a dull,
non-techie, old lady!
So here's a quick look at the amaryllis situation on the dining room
This photo is from last weekend. My five containers on the tray - the
repotted bulbs from the past two years - are slowly coming along.
All have a touch of green so must be alive! Saturday is watering day
so tomorrow they will drink and hopefully have a growth spurt.
The large pot in front is the newly purchased bulb after potting a week ago.
It was really leaning over when planted so I spent the week turning it
around to get light on each side, and. . . . . . . .
. . . . . . as you can see above, today it's certainly straight and has
its first bud showing a little color (it's pink and white) so is well on its
way to blooming. Being a large new bulb, I'm hoping for several
blooms first time around.
Hoping Thanksgiving was enjoyed by all despite many of us not being
able to be with ones we love as in other years.
It's a beautiful late afternoon, sunny and 70F so right now I'm
taking a break. Brewed a Thermos of hot Empress Grey tea - my
favorite - and am taking my most loved one on a little surprise
drive to view the sunset!
More on the location for afternoon tea, which I hope will be good,
Have a good weekend.
