In spite of myself…..

I always start out with the best of intentions.I receive a plant as a gift,and I always swear upon the gardening gods that I’m gonna take care of it.But I have to fess up-I’m not too good at that….
Two years ago,at Christmas,I received two Amaryllis,as gifts.Said me,to myself,” Oooo-I’m gonna plant these in the garden and see if they bloom again.”
Did I? Nope.They were left just as they were received.In that area of the garden we all have.The one where forgotten plants go to exist.We all have that area of our garden.Where we put those plants that aren’t doing well,or the ones we don’t know what to do with…You know you have one,too.

Then,today,Meems at Hoe and Shovel,posted on FaceBook,how her forgotten Amaryllis were finally blooming.
”Oooooo-I should really check on those of mine.”

And there they were!!!!IMG_0965

In spite of me…
