Presidents Day ~ Week

Good evening!

What a beautiful treat of a day this was. We had dreadful winds and penetrating cold over the weekend, so cold it hurt to go outside, so this brief respite is a delight.

I promised you all that the paperwhites would bloom by Presidents Week, and here they are! NO scent this year, I know that growers have been breeding out the dirty diaper stink of the flowers, as Mel describes it.

These are the solo vases. Note how pretty and rewarding even one bulb from the grocery store or loose bin at the nursery can be.

My recycled, regrown amaryllis has two buds and red petals are showing.

The paperwhites should last another week, then the amaryllis will take a bit longer. I'm pretty thrilled that the beautiful red flowers will return this year.

I went thrifting with my friend B last week. Big shopping post coming later in the week, so see you then!



gone to the beach......

PS I'm told the tshirt woman loved her college memories quilt.
