"Catch-up Time...."

Charlie and Lonny stopped by after getting back from Nevada, where they spent their Christmas vacation with family. It was nice to "catch up" on happenings in their busy lives.

Don's sister, Bonnie, and her husband, Eugene, sent us an amaryllis bulb for Christmas. It has just started to sprout this past week.

Unfortunately, I didn't correctly care for the one they sent us last year, because it is still green leaved and sitting downstairs in the cooler garage. My goal is to follow the care directions this year with both, setting them outside this summer, and then bringing them in to the basement for their "rest". Hopefully, we will have both blooming again next year.
