Hit a snag on the computer yesterday, so was unable to publish blog entry. At just after four o'clock this afternoon 'phoned daughter Ruth in Sweden. A good deal of thought went into the timing - Swedish time is an hour ahead of ours, and as Ruth teaches (and the Swedish school hours too are rather ahead of ours, I think) I got the timing about right, and Ruth was happy to spend an hour on the blower; so that, with the occasional helpful interjection from her husband, the three of us were able improve matters on the blogger a good deal - many thanks to both of them.
I bought the above amarylis in Highdale sometime last November. Most weeks I manage to find flowers for Ann, but last November decent flowers seemed in short supply here, so in the end I found a shop (the Co-op I think) selling amarylis bulbs, which looked healthy, so I bought her some potential flowers, which are now, as you can see, just beginning to reach their potential.
I am really just waffling now to see if the computer (when I press the 'publish button') has now fully resumed its duties........... here goes!
