My daughter gave me a potted Amaryllis bulb for Christmas. It's been fascinating to watch as nearly every day the stalk shot up higher than the day before. It took about two weeks to bloom but the end result was well worth the wait. Have you ever 'raised' an Amaryllis bulb?
The border we put up in the laundry room:)
Among the lovely gifts I got from the fam were these bowls. I thought the cat people out there would appreciate them.
Last year the HH ordered a chocolate on chocolate bday cake for me, got it home and found out it was white with chocolate icing.
This year he ordered a chocolate on chocolate bday cake, and they made a chocolate with white icing.
He told me that they always take great pains to write down the order correctly. Now if they'd just take as much time to actually read it.... Heh.
