Seeing Red

Let me introduce you to my lilies. 

They are quite a showy bunch.  They love to be the center of attention.  They happen to be very cheerful and smiley and seem to love to be in their own company. 
Oh, also, they multiply like rabbits. 

When I moved into this house there was one lonely stalk standing in the middle of the place.  That fall I dug that sucker up and divided the bulb.  Fast forward a few years. 
Last fall, when the lilies died down, I dug up and divided the bulbs again (like I have every year).  I filled two paper lunch bags with extra bulbs and gave them away.  So this display that you are seeing is actually only one third of the bulbs that had produced in my flower bed! 

They are currently only occupying this one section that you see in the first pic.  But it is looking like the lilies are going to have to be thinned and spread over the entire flower bed.  I have to say, I am quite proud of these showstoppers.  They really are quite amazing and I just had to share them with you.

Life is Funny

It hasn't even been a week since my surgery and there is already a rumor going around this tiny town that I had a boob job.  I think it's hilarious.  Seriously.  That rumor won't stand for very long.  Haha.  Nope.  Still tiny as ever! 

It honestly cracks me up that people out there heard that I had surgery and the only logical reason that they could possibly come up with is a boob job.  What the bloody hell? 

Life.  It's funny.

Just a Note

So, I made it through surgery without a hitch.  I have a very bruised belly button and two more incisions to prove it.  Unfortunately, I didn't get along so well with anesthesia and was in the hospital well past the expected time of departure.

For anyone wanting to know, I had laparoscopic surgury performed to find out why my girl parts are such bitches.  Turns out, I had endometriosis and quite a bit of scar tissue stitching things together that should not have been stitched together.  But my fabulous doctor lasered that shit out of there like a Jedi knight.  Hopefully, life will be a lot more pleasant from now on.

I was greeted on my arrival home by cascades of pink blossoms on my rose bushes and two beautiful pink peonies blooming for the very first time.  (those are my roses right up there.)   Yay for spring!
