Our Amaryllis

Third Year of Bloom
IMG_0686This plant was a gift to us from Sylvia, Mandy and Alex. We have kept and attempted to follow the instructions for care of this flower from year to year… and it seems to be working! This is the third year we have enjoyed watching it grow and bloom. There are four blooms this year and they are beautiful. It’s not quite at full bloom, but it will be in a few days.

We have it siting in the floor of our family room. Every night we have to turn the plant to keep it growing straight as it grows toward the warm sunlight.

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
While we are enjoying the indoor Amaryllis we are also enjoying he early spring flowers that are blooming all around town. Yes, spring is in the air. The rose bushes we planted in the last couple of years are beginning to sprout. Spring is wonderful, it like a rebirth of life anew. I hope you enjoy it to the fullest!

I hope you are OK today. I’m sorry that I forgot to warn about yesterday.  Yesterday it happened: Friday the 13th fell on Sunday this month.

Joke of the Day

An elderly woman walked into the local country church. The friendly usher greeted her at the door and helped her up the flight of steps.  

"Where would you like to sit?" he asked politely.  

"The front row, please," she answered.  

"You really don't want to do that," the usher said. "The pastor is really boring."  

"Do you happen to know who I am?" the woman inquired.  

"No," he said.  

"I'm the pastor's mother," she replied indignantly.  

"Do you know who I am?" he asked.  

"No," she said.  

"Good," he answered.
