Amazing......after almost six months, the Amaryllis has finally blossomed. It looks like several more are on the horizon as well. I love this white one.........something I haven't seen before. I hope the others open before I leave on my trip to Oregon at the end of the week, or if they don't, they will hold on until I return. Since I took this picture this morning, another one has opened up, so now that it has started maybe the buds will all open right away.
This is me and my cousin Lorelei. After being out of touch for most of our lives. she has reappeared. This is the second visit we have had. She and her friend Deb have come here twice and we have had a great time. It's not a case of reminiscing, since we grew up pretty much apart, but we are hearing about each others' lives now, getting to know one another. Her friend commissioned me to paint four paintings for her, and they came to pick them up today. After all these years, it is great to to get acquainted. I hope we will now remain in each other's lives.
