RE: A great trip

I've got a hyacinth in a bulb vase I'm working on right now.  It is only
about 1 1/2" out of the bulb right now, but oh the roots are everywhere and
the color already beginning to show on the buds!  I also have two nice
amaryllis I'm working on in pots.  I figured February would be a good time
to have something green come up and start to bloom by the end of the month.
February is always a very cold, dreary month here.  Even with the mild
January and the unusually sunny days here at the first of the year, winter
has returned with a vengeance.  The bulldogs and I dread going out when it
is like this.  Of course, when there is enough snow, Miss Mary still likes
making her bulldog snow angels.  (She should have been born a husky.  She
really doesn't seem as bothered by the cold as the rest of us.)  

In any case, anything green and blooming inside is heaven sent.  Bill has
been picking up little bouquets for me since everything has gone dormant so
I won't go into withdrawal, too.  However, to have the good fortune to go to
a wonderful show at this time of year is a fabulous thing!!!  It's not just
a "tide over" but a soul renewal!!!  I'm so tickled for you!
