Amaryllis and the Moth
This morning I decided that I needed to do a little housework. Mainly to warm up my hands. When there is no fog it gets cold. It is hard to do anything. After a while, with the winter sun beaming thru my window, tea sounded so good. Maybe a little knitting before I get down the knitty gritty clay work. So I was relaxing, sipping genmai tea, steeped in my favorite ceramic teapot, surrounded by yarn when I heard this little fluttering by the fireplace. Lo and Behold, a small ochre colored moth! How it came to be in my house of wool, I wondered. I picked it up and put it in a glass globe I have planted with bulbs,succulents, candy canes (don't ask), gravel, and water. The first thing it does is take a sip of water. While photographing this little moth, I realized that the amaryllis looked amazing, too. So I took its photo, too. There's a story in all this somewhere. Maybe.
