Alternate Color.....

A newly purchased amaryllis.  It was suppose to be a red one if you look at the box. It  put out a single bloom for two days and a second one then opened on Saturday.  It isn’t red and I think this was a great mistake. Instead of multiple stems, it is on stem with multiple buds on three sides.

Craters Again......

I will cut back now on the posting of moon shots.  It just came out as a better picture than I have taken before now.

Bottles in the Basement.....

There are more things besides bottles in the photo.  Things get  put there for storage as there is not a place elsewhere to put them. Maybe a new shelving unit can be created to display them better than in a work room. Can you spot the egg crate, Vicks jar, glass flue, and antique medicine bottle?

There is plenty of shine when the container is made of plastic.  There is more shine when the ornaments are also plastic with a bright shine. I used these on my outside tree but they haven’t been put on the tree yet this year. I know when plastic was first invented that it was said that plastic is better.  I am not sure that it is so easily reduced in the landfill.  It these were glass they would be outstanding but plastic is a good fake glass.

Finding the Moon.....

It is hard to see from my house.  We were returning home in the evening and first saw it to our left up in the sky while being on a straight east/west road.  By the time we drove up the curved street to our house. I couldn’t find it in the sky. Then I realized it was straight out from our driveway and was just peaking up over the neighbor’s house.  As time went by it was so low in the sky that it went behind the neighbor’s house. I can now understand why I don’t see it as it goes up and over behind my horizon view of houses.

Morning View on Monday.....

All is quiet on the Christmas tree front. Santa seems to be in charge of this corner of the room. A village is yet to be placed out and displayed. Ir stays on display for a long time past the holidays so we aren’t in a big hurry with that. Can you spot the ornament that came from Maine?
