Two Things: Updates

1.  Someone wrote to me yesterdayday to tell me that I was in error in a post written long ago in which I said that the people who ran the lavender farm that closed after a to-do with the border and what could cross it had left the Point.  I am informed that they are still here, although the lavender farm and the lavender events and produce are not, alas.  Glad to know that.

2.  The Amaryllis provided by the International Market has bloomed spectacularly, about 8 weeks after first being planted in its ridiculously small pot (5 inch diameter).  The stalk is about 25 inches tall, and it has a small set of leaves about 6 inches tall and growing.  The stalk is topped by four big trumpet flowers, evenly spaced around the stalk.  Each flower is about 5 inches long and 7 inches across.  See photo below, which was taken from above the flower: the only angle at which you can see all four of them!
