God knew what He was doing when He sent a gentle breeze and brought a lovely butterfly to set my heart at ease. The happiness of your friendship and the gentleness of your words have touched my life in special ways and now I feel assured. Thank you for your loyalty and for reading everyday. I only hope you find things to make a happy day.

A Spot of Red for the Holidays
It's time to plant some beauty. Christmas will soon be here and the color red is so prevalent in our holiday decorating. I love the bright color...maybe it's my favorite "today" I have several bulbs that I keep from year to year, but each year I like to buy a new one. This year I selected my old "favorite" Red Lion. Some little critter ate a hole in the bulb that I have, when it was outside this summer, and I'm not sure if it will bloom again. I ordered from American Meadows, and it arrived just this week. I potted it up right away, so it will bloom during the holiday season. Just a little water at first and set it in a bright window and sit back and wait. When it starts growing start the watering. Couldn't be easier. I like to mix these blooms with Spanish moss and ivy. I leave it in the pot that came with it and then set it in a larger one for display. We don't do quite as much decorating as we once did...so these look so festive...especially the reds.
