In anticipation of the winter blahs.


Disclaimer: I don’t like to shop at Walmart, but sometimes it is my only option. Shopping is very limited in Laramie. Sometimes, the only place I can find a thing in town is to go to Walmart. So I did.

I went to Walmart yesterday and bought two amaryllis. They each came in a box which had a big tablet of compressed growing medium (just add water), a pot and a big bulb. I planted them this morning. According to the blurb on the box, they should bloom in 8 to 12 weeks. That will be anywhere from the middle of January to the middle of February, just when the long, cold winter is starting to get a bit oppressive. With luck we should have some spectacular blooms to provide relief and remind us than it is just four more months until spring.

  1. ahh, the winter blahs. ahh Wal-Mart. I too, have become a walmart shopper to survive in Sonora. A true despiser of Wal-Mart, I sneak in there on Sunday mornings when they first open to try to miss the crowds and so that I won’t go crazy with all the various kinds of music going on at once. And I have decided it’s ok. In the bigger picture of surviving life, it’s ok to go to WalMart
