This click was taken in the morning before opening the office blinds. It’s the second blooming on the amaryllis and a little more subdued, like this light.
You can see the first blooming here, here, here.
Right after I clicked the first blooming, the fourth bud opened.
And right after that, the whole thing toppled over, cracked the pot, and scattered potting soil everywhere. No one was in the room at the time. Could have been a gremlin.
I was in the shower when this trag occurred, which meant G-Man was stuck with putting Humpity Dumpity Amarylly back together again and delivering the bad news.
It’s sitches like this where you want to send that unsigned text message.
Am I right?
One bloom broke off, so I floated it in a bowl of water and prettied up the kitchen with it.
The pot was only cracked, so it was set into a larger, heavier pot with a broader base. The rest of the blooms on the single stem were propped up with a metal rod.
All was well in the casa.
I was surprised by the second stem growth after the first flowers died. Surprised and delighted. It’s also grown four leaves.
This morning, I shoved a stick out of a window blind down the side of the pot for support.
And that’s my sorry little tale.
Here be Friday.
Time to scram. Vamoose. Hightail it out of here.
Yes, WordPress, that is spelled correctly.
