A few weeks ago I posted a picture of these two plants as they started to grow. They were dormant for so long a less optimistic woman would have given them up for dead. But now, here they are, six months later. For awhile I thought they were thinking of blooming NEXT Christmas, but at the rate they are going now, I'm guessing it will be only a month or so.
I am completely unpacked now and settled back into my Eastport home. I have not so far regretted my decision to stay here. I have no idea if I have learned my lesson yet......will my desire to return to Bangor come around again? It won't surprise me if it does. For now, though, I'm glad I'm here. I have even contemplated applying for membership in the Eastport Gallery again. They are taking applications next weekend. If I can convince myself to remain a member without trying to run things, I think it may be a good idea. I doubt that I have been blackballed to the point that I will be refused admission. Most of the people who were there and active while I was a member have left. The ones who are still there may remember that my style as president was too heavy-handed...."my way or the highway:-)." I have a reputation there as one who quits when crossed. This is true. I do not play well with others.
Perhaps if I take an oath of silence, that I will keep my opinions to myself, I will be accepted. Either way it is probably a bad idea, come to think of it. When have I ever been able to keep silent?
