Thank you all for your well wishes.
The three baby dills are feeling much better,
which makes life easier for the momma.
We chose black and white for our Christmas colors this year. I ransacked and subsequently organized [again] my year's supply of fabric, pulling blacks and whites, remembering where I got each piece with fondness. Is that silly, that I have memories attached to folds of fabric? I plan on making these baby dill girls of ours a new black and white frock for Christmas. I'm not entirely sure I'll be able to pull it off, although my other handmade gifts are well under control, so just perhaps, with a bit of Christmas magic it might happen.
Ryan dutifully planted paperwhites and white amaryllis to match the theme with black rocks as the "dirt". Only the first amaryllis to bloom did not follow the color scheme. The nerve that she would show her ruby colors off without scruples. She does look lovely next to the giant pomegranates and le vase des pommes, no?
Have a dillicious and fulfilling [food and otherwise]
