~We are drawing so close to our weekend celebrations. The boys are decorating the house for C.C's birthday, and I am trying to get things finished and wrapped. Can I just have a few more days please?
~Here is a little something for the sweetest boy of almost two.
~On another note, after the first of December, I planted an amaryllis entitled "Double Dragon". As you may know, it takes about 8-10 weeks for the bulb to bloom. (Oh, the amaryllis was purchased here.)
~The plant is located by my bedside and I took a photo one afternoon while C.C. was nearby (as you can see his hand here). Guess what? As I thought we moved on to other projects, I went back into our bedroom only to find the flower head ripped off the stalk and dirt all over the floor! ARG! Double ARG! This was the first time C.C. had noticed this new item by my bedside. The flower was so close to opening, and I was dying to see the bloom.
~On a whim, I put the bud in a vase (yes there was a nice bite mark on the bud--checking for flavor?), and it still bloomed. Yeah. Thank you, thank you to all of those people that hybridize to bring us these beautiful flowers. Merci.
~Here is a photo of the new snow we received during our slumber. Just perfect.
