I last watered my Amaryllis in August and this is what they look like now. Another week or so and I'll be able to cut off the last leaves and tuck the dry plants away until the middle of December.
I bought a package of 10 Hyacinths at Walmart. They've begun marking down their bulbs now.
I potted them up in plastic pots and put them with the Tulips I planted a month ago. Tomorrow I'll find something to lay over the pots to keep the annoying squirrels from digging into the soil.
There's a blue moon tonight. I saw it last night as it shone into the bedroom through the skylight. Normally blue moons come only about every 2 or 3 years. In 2018 we had 2 blue moons and they were only 2 months apart. the next time we get 2 blue moons in one year will be 2037.
Tonight's moon is known as the Full Hunter's Moon. (the picture below is from the internet)
Are you ready to leave October behind ? I've begun to think Christmas and I've been looking at various blogs that have such interesting recipes not to mention all the gorgeous pictures on Pinterest. I'm quite sure if I tried to replicate any one of the crafts that they deem 'easy' I'd be looking at a disaster. It's fun to look and admire anyway.
Have a good weekend, G.M.
