The flowers at church are often from someone’s garden, as was the case yesterday. But I couldn’t believe the flowers that were in there. It was an amaryllis stalk! The flowers were beautiful, but I couldn’t believe someone cut it.
Amaryllis plants only bloom once per year, and they only have one bloom stalk. The donor gave up an entire year’s worth of flowers so our sanctuary could be beautified. So generous!
In other news, Diane found a scorpion in the teacher workroom at school yesterday. Ack! She sent me a picture of it:
She also sent some instructions:
If you ever find one, always cut the tail off with the scissors first. Otherwise it will try to sting you.
I think I need to start carrying a pair of scissors wherever I go…
