What I'm reading: The Melissa Harrison book was so well written and interesting until about two thirds or more through the book when suddenly it became depressing and had a fairly unsatisfactory ending. Not one of the three main characters had their hopes/dreams fulfilled. I felt depressed when I was done reading.
Miss Read, on the other hand, never disappoints me.
Does anyone remember the Ideals magazines? I used to have a big stack of them which I donated. This week I bought these 2 "for old times sake". For all I know they might be some of the ones I donated years ago. I enjoyed paging through them reading the poems and looking at the pictures. Next time I go to the thrift store I'll take them back and some one else can enjoy them.
I bought a bag of Daffodil bulbs and put some in pots and the rest in the ground. I hope they'll all grow and bloom next Spring.
My Thanksgiving/Christmas Cactus have lots of buds. I bought a potted plant with two different coloured blooms last year. After it finished blooming I divided it into 3 pots but I don't know what colour I'll end up with. These look quite pale so maybe white?
Years ago I had a Chinese Lantern plant and I'm not too sure exactly why I don't still have it. They tend to be very hardy and even invasive so I don't think it died. I think I'll look for another one. At this time of the year their papery pods look wonderful. I got this picture off the internet in case you are not familiar with this plant. Isn't it pretty?
