What's Going On

I've not been around lately - I came down with a cold that knocked me down for almost a week. Normally when I'm sick, I take some drugs, take things a little easy and pretty much continue with the normal course of life. Not with this cold - I spent three days in bed sleeping. I didn't go out, I didn't go to church, I didn't go to work - a surreal experience. I'm pretty much back to "normal" now, with the exception of continued head congestion and a bit of a cough.

Of course, the weather turned spring-like while I was sleeping my days and nights away. And now that I have rejoined the land of the living, the weather has reverted back to winter.

There's an upside to it all - days are longer, there's a pink and blue sunset right outside my window and I managed to take some photos while I was sick (so maybe I didn't spend each waking hour in bed - it just felt that way). Spring is on its way.

I bought a second bouquet of tulips right before I got sick. These flowers lasted over a week....

On the Straight and Narrow

The Calm

Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers to-day;
And give us not to think so far away
As the uncertain harvest; keep us here
All simply in the springing of the year

From A Prayer in Spring by Robert Frost

The amaryllis is starting to bloom. I know it's not a traditional spring flower, but I cannot resist its lush, velvet petals. I'm glad I didn't kill it this year....



Here's to warmer days ahead.

Oh I'm sorry you were sick. Good idea, getting the tulips. I absolutely love pink tulips. So you didn't waste the days away completely because you have some lovely photos.

Glad you are better! We've been sharing a stomach bug around here. Your tulip pictures are always beautiful. (Winter is back for a day here along TX gulf coast too...boo)
