This blog is named after my dog, Dino the wonder dog. Other than that, this blog doesn’t have a lot to do with him, except that some days, when I am just too busy or too tired or have a migraine, I let Dino write my blog for me. On days when he has not taken over the computer, I write about my life – the past, the present and the future - my travels far and near and my home. I would love it if you would follow along.
been a fan of the amaryllis. My idea of a flowering plant is a plant that has both
flowers which bloom periodically and leafy foliage which it maintains year-round.
The only amaryllis plants I’ve seen grow tall stalks, break out in flowers
after a couple weeks and then wilt and die.
I found it
humorous that the websites I found which talked about the amaryllis claim that
it is easy to care for. The directions sounded rather convoluted to me. And the
payback seems to be little.
however, loved the amaryllis and seemed to get one frequently for Christmas.
She thrived on the anticipation of watching it grow on a daily basis, waiting
for the flowers to bloom. And then it was over.
flowers are beautiful, but I’m always left asking, what now? But maybe that’s
part of the beauty. That it was fleeting. That it would be there one day and
gone the next.
Hard for me to believe that it was only a few weeks ago, when I spent an entire weekend at Mom’s, that her amaryllis went from this...
to this ...
to this in only a day.
Two days later, it was gone. And so was Mom. Maybe that was all part of the plan.
