Surprise, Surprise, Surprise

Look what I found outside my kitchen window when I got home from a long weekend in Wellington!



It's an amaryllis plant, and I have no idea how it got there. See all the crappy wires and pipes coming out of the house around it? I clearly did not plant a beautiful flower in this particular spot, but who did? It's the side of the house that we pay the least amount of attention to, so it's even a wonder that I discovered it. And, I think Bubba's taken the weed-whacker to the leaves a few times, as we both thought it was just a weird plant of some sort. I never would have expected THIS!

I think it's God's little gift to me for the day. Here, you did nothing to deserve this plant, but here it is anyway. Isn't that what Grace is all about?

It's beautiful! I'm jealous - I wish I had lovely flowers growing up around here! We are still getting frost in the mornings.

Those pipes / lines are the life blood of the house.
