oh there you are and a surprise

Do you ever look at yourself and just go DUH!!!


I'm afraid to say I do it quite often. 

I was wondering where you were. I thought my blog had reverted to a no reply blog again. I thought my new contact form wasn't working. I thought.....well apparently I wasn't thinking.


It suddenly dawned on me that maybe, just maybe you might be in my Gmail. You see, I don't usually use my Gmail. I have my other email listed on my blog account and I do get email for my blog there. I do get replies from some blogs there, but apparently my Gmail is where the replies of those on Google+ go. 

So please accept my humble apologies if you tried to contact me in the last millennium and I didn't get back to you. I will try to get into the habit of checking it regularly. I may tape a sign to my forehead so I will see it when I look in the mirror. 

The surprise was this pot of daylilies. 


Last year when I moved I dug up a few things from my garden and stuck them in pots. I knew I wouldn't be able to plant them in the ground here, and I really didn't have hope that any of them had survived the terrible winter we had. So imagine my surprise when I looked out a few days ago and saw them blooming.

Such a simple pleasure.

  6. So beautiful. Such simple pleasures and such wonderful rewards. I didn't get to see my lilies blooming this year. Moved them before they were ready to bloom. I just don't get the whole Google+ thing at all, so I just don't deal with it.

    1. Sorry you missed out on your lilies blooming. They really are such a pleasure. Once you are on Goggle+ it is hard to remove it and I do have some new people on there. So I guess I will soldier on :)

  8. I can't keep track of what is going on...not computer savvy at all!! Google+ really confuses me. But you come up on my blogroll. That's all I can say!! Love the yellow daylily. I have the orange variety that I hear grows along some highways like weeds. I think I am going to divide them and give them away and start some of the yellow ones...sooo pretty! :)

    XO,
    Jane

    1. I did lose some people off my blog roll when I changed my blog but you weren't one of them. You are still there :)

      We do seem to have a lot of the orange ones along the highways here. I thinks they are all pretty.

  11. Your day Lilly's are beautiful! Definitely a simple pleasure! I am SO bad at getting around to comment that I feel guilty about it. Is that crazy? I write two blogs but don't get many comments. So my goal now is to just write and not worry for now about whether people comment.
