Countdown, Day 5: White Orchids & Amaryllis

The idea of waiting for something makes it more exciting.
~~Andy Warhol

Like anticipating Christmas.


Like watching an amaryllis unfold.


Slowly and quietly, the pieces come together...

The pleasure isn't in doing the thing,
the pleasure is in planning it.
~~John Green, Paper Towns

oh! silly me!
i somehow thought your 'countdown' would be once a week. imagine my delight when i just felt like stopping by and enjoying the last one all over again . . . to find all these i've missed.
good grief charlie brown!
i always love the abbey ~ but at christmas time . . . it just makes me very happy.
don't laugh but it somehow makes me feel it's a cross between being in a church and williams sonoma combined! I LOVE IT !!!

Your photography is tops! And waiting is the best part of Christmas, and amaryllis is my have to have Christmas flower. I can never get mine to bloom in time for Christmas, but they are such a comfort in January when they do bloom.

This is a lovely series. I look forward each day to see what you'll have for us!
