But then on the other hand, it could just be that is the way it is supposed to be...

Sometime over Christmas I believe I posted a photo very similar to this...well, I went into my almost deserted greenhouse to water the one tomato plant I am hiding there from the raccoons, and there was a beautiful Amaryllis ready to bloom!  What a glorious surprise.  I watered it, brought it indoors and when I woke this morning it was ablaze with colour.

This beautiful blossom rose from dry soil in a pot stored in the greenhouse for summer.  What I didn't realize was that it would bloom twice in one year.   Hence, the surprise.

Tell me, have you had any surprises this week?  Pleasant or otherwise?

Wishing you the best of surprises.
God bless and be well.


  1. I tried a Neti pot yesterday for the first time and was surprised at how fun it was.. [no sarcasm]

    1. Wow! I have wondered about those...was it recommended by your doctor before surgery? Glad it was a good surprise for you.

  2. It's so nice to have a blooming plant inside just in time for our anniversary... and it has another blossom ready to open in the next day or so.

    I get a surprise every day working on the project.... sometimes good, Sometimes not. I try to remember the good ones... like the times I'm installing soffit cedar and the boards fit without having to cut when you get across to the other side. Stuff like that doesn't happen often.

    1. It is very pleasant when the project comes together like we envision in the first place. Thank you for the surprise today with the scarf rack you built me! Now I will be able to see my scarves and maybe I will actually wear them!
