left planted a month ago
right planted today
The bulbs on the right were deprived of soil and sunshine. But, spider lily bulbs must be hardy.
two more pots planted today
with spider lilies
I decided the dying Hosta could play host to the little bulb on the left.
The four on the right emerged while closed in a plastic bag.
It seems I must have buried one....hmmm.
There were five in the last picture.
Somewhere, there is another Hosta playing host to another spider lily bulb. There is no picture, somehow. Altogether, I have four full pots of spider lilies plus two tucked into two different Hosta pots. I will remove those two in the spring, maybe.
Operation Christmas Child 2014
Yes, I have started on next year's boxes.
I bought two packages.
six activity books x 2 = 12 books
It appears I bought these this season. Or, maybe last year. But, I would not buy full-price things. Whatever. At any rate, these are $0.16/each. Little grandchildren will get four, one of each style for each child. That leaves 8 for next OCC.
I purchased three Monster High Cups. Two are for my little grandchildren. One is for Operation Christmas Child.
Someone gave me about a dozen of these bags. I have nine left for OCC. Making tote bags would be better, but these will work if I don't get around to it. If I fill a dozen shoe boxes again, I will only need three more tote bags.
Why do I think these will be okay for a Shoebox? Every child loves to have something to contain his or her things. These won't take up much room. We all like to be able to contain our things to carry or keep safe.
Then, I ate too many chocolate covered cherries...groan. In a few minutes, I am going to get my free chicken sandwich.
Today was the first day I have had energy and breath to do anything even though I have done things other days. I got more of the dishwasher emptied and will put chicken in the oven along with sweet potatoes.
Is anyone still planting bulbs? How far have you gotten with OCC?
