MIA - missing in action

Sorry for the lack of posts. I've noticed it's been about 3 weeks since I last posted, but life's been busier than usual. This is the season of Lent, and that usually means an extra worship service on Wednesday evenings. But we also get to participate in a soup supper before the service begins. My problem is that I have been getting home from work after 5:30 and we usually need to leave home by 6 pm to get to the soup supper in time. So there hasn't been any extra time to check personal emails and blog posts. The other thing that has been taking up quite a bit of my time has been Sharks hockey home games. More to report on that a little later. Also, for the past few weeks, mostly when I've had a few hours to spare, I've been trying to update all my photos in my files, and I've been trying to update my photos online. I like keeping my photos online with Webshots. If you should ever want to browse through my albums at Webshots, go here.

Meanwhile, I thought I would leave you with some photos of one of my amaryllis plants that bloomed last month. Funny thing, I have five amaryllis bulbs and only one of them bloomed this year. I must be doing something wrong, or maybe my plants are really slow this year. None of the others are showing any signs of possibly blooming in the next few weeks. But anyway, enjoy this Red Lion in its various stages of blossoming. This first one was taken on March 13th.
This one was taken only two days later - March 15th.
What a big difference here; this was taken March 19th.
And in its full bloom on March 22. And it was about another two or three days and these blooms were gone. They sure didn't last long. But I totally enjoyed them while they existed.

Your Amaryllis flower is very pretty. The red color is so pure red. I find we arrange our schedule around the Pittsburgh Penguin games on TV. I wish we had season tickets for them but that's not going to happen so we settle for the NHL package on satellite. The soup supper sounds like a delicious time. I hope you have a wonderful Easter. We are getting snow right now. :-(

No need to apologize; post when you can, and enjoy life otherwise! I especially like the first photo of the flower budding - great colors & shape!

Life does get that way... Thanks for sharing the lovely amaryllis bloom. I didn't grow one this year.

Hola Mary,
Is nice to hear from you again! I haven't been posting too much lately either...
The blooming beauty might be over in your eyes, it certainly stays in the heart, isn't it?
Besos,
Mel
