One Day at a Time...

Well, the white hyacinth blossoms have died and I put the plant outdoors to finish off so I can store the bulbs for replanting. I have had a lot of short breath and coughing lately and have had to resort to Coricidin-D for relief. It helps and I really think the pollen from indoor plants with flowers might be my problem.

I received 5 little bulbs with sprouts in the mail yesterday. The soil in front has thawed and the daffodils are poking up so I planted them there. These are special because they came from a family I met in SC who have now moved to the far western part of VA and are building their homestead. Meg found the flowers last year growing "wild" on the property and shared them. Here is one of last year's pictures she sent me.

Of course I then had to research this yellow beauty and here is what I found.
I sure have high hopes they will thrive and join the daffodils for me!

In the meantime, I designed and painted an Easter egg yesterday, using the application on which that I have been trying to improve my skills. I first painted my egg and then resorted to photomanipulating to be satisfied with the results. It is just a hobby, but I like a challenge and will keep trying to paint better projects.
Well there you have it...I'm hangin' in and I'm hangin' on.

  1. Hey great to hear! I have been relaxing a bit after the big show here... I was exhausting. I need to stop by for tea or coffee at some point.

    1. Your are ALWAYS welcome! Glad you had a big show.

  2. I do hope you feel better soon!!! And the yellow flower is mighty pretty. Bulbous flowers don't do well in our soil...too dense and damp all the time.

    Love your egg art.
