We are busy getting ready for our special company and really looking forward to their visit. The next few days will be quite busy as we make our preparations, so please don't be surprised if things are quite quiet around here! I'll do my best to get back as I can.
We have started to put the children to bed earlier each night to make up for the time change coming this weekend. It seems to make the transition easier for us all, and with our company coming, they will need to get rested up to keep up with Auntie K, the boys, and Grammy!
Do you remember my free amaryllis bulbs? We have had so much fun with them. The three on the table in just water and marbles are growing wildly. We had to add more marbles to stabilize the whole plant. The water gets horribly stinky, so it is a bit of a chore to change it daily, but as they are just about to reward us with lovely blossoms, it is well worth it!
This one I planted in dirt and surrounded with moss. It has been the first to bloom, and as it sits on my kitchen window sill, it is bringing much pleasure to the daily tasks of washing up and meal preparation.
Do you see how tall and lovely these are? I think we may awaken to the delight of color tomorrow!
For a splash of extra vibrant color, primroses! I was so delighted when my Historian brought these home the other day! I was really needing the encouragement of a touch of spring! I popped them into some thrifted fancy metal pots and now I need to find them a sunny home! They don't get enough light on my kitchen counter, and no doubt they'll get covered in flour as I bake up a storm for our company!
