I love those glass balls!


I love the pond floats. The fish like to follow them around here too when I push the floats away from the edges.
Amazing that you have Amaryllis blooming now!

Kathleen, Yes that's a beautiful float... and yes, your temporary photos are gorgeous... and yes, just go ahead and whine if your amaryllis don't bloom this coming Winter. After all, I whined last Winter... they only bloomed because of the threat of ending up in the Compost pile! ha. :-) Happy Fall... (did I really say that?)


Love the pictures-anything with water captivates me. About amaryllis-I've kept mine over the summer but need to put them into dormancy now if I want blooms in the winter. Not had much luck in the past even when following directions. Tips? Like you, I need real flowers in the winter on occasion so I do buy them for an emotional lift. Have been enjoying your blog and pictures for awhile. Thanks


Hi Jane! Thanks for your nice comment. I rarely have Amaryllis bloom out of season ~ so I'm not sure why it's happening this year? I usually put them outdoors each summer, fertilize the heck out of them (meaning almost every single day) then before the first frost I cut the foliage off, re-pot in new potting soil and place in my dark basement until I see signs of life. We'll see what happens this year! Good luck with yours.

Kathleen, Do you have the little Glory Lily tubers? If not, would you like me to send you a couple?


Beautiful - so glad you got the floats! Love the pics in the birdbath. You are so creative!


You do create the most intriquing vignettes for your photos. I love those glass balls too. :)
