On a more pleasant note...Check out the progress on our basement. Lotsa dust but hey, it isn't holey anymore. Lookin' good!
Here is my happy Bromeliad as it looked this morning. It's not a very good picture. I was trying to get a close-up of the blue flower centers but I was too much in a hurry. It's happy because, back in July I transplanted some of them and so they are gonna flower for me a little right now to show their appreciation. They are bizarrely unique looking. The florescent color is real. They usually flower in Spring and then sometimes again in the Fall. I wish the flowers lasted longer. I wanted to make sure that I was spelling bromeliad correctly so went to Dictionary.com and I just found out that pineapples are in the bromeliad family! Sure enough, the leaves are similar, kinda dry and stiff, learned something new today. Here is what they look like when they are really happy:
Sadly, I am gonna have to part with some of my babies (potted plants) when we move because I doubt that I will have space for all of them. Where we are now we have a large porch and it is filled with different potted plants that do well in the shade. I'll letcha know when the time comes, what I'm gonna do with them all. Meanwhile I want to think of happy things, like the young man who defied death this morning!
