So the last week or so has been a mix of ups, downs and a grinding of gears. First a mix of the high and low. In the above image you can see that my Amaryllis has opened, yay! But if you see the bulb in the middle you will see that there is an…… Continue reading Highs, Highs and Lows
Now, before I start, I don’t mean the excellent Dinah Washington song… Last week I was lamenting on my Amaryllis’ being so very late to start… Well… Look at them now! Much better!
