End of the day....

Thursday, February 7th, 2019

First of all Bruce goes out for some night-time air, 

and to attend to other business.

A few minutes later

The door explodes, 

 - the little dog comes rushing through,

his nails clitter clattering down the hallway.....

  -  and it is time for evening treats.

Callie gets in on the feast as well, 

but in a much more ladylike fashion.

 I gather up my mints,

 my Ipad for watching Netflix 

(until my eyes waver and close,)

 and as I go to lock the doors

 and check that the pilot light

in the little gas fireplace is on and burning brightly

 I am awash in the lovely fragrance of the Hoya

as I brush past it..... 

What a perfectly lovely way

to end the day!

And how generous the Hoya is

to scent this wintry evening!

Post Script...

many thanks to Ruth for helping me

give this plant the right name!!!!

What variety of hosta do you have? The flowers look like our mountain laurel here in Pennsylvania. You're right - it's wonderful to have something alive and fragrant growing in the dead of winter.

I've got it - did you mean "hoya"??? I didn't think you meant hosta!

Beautiful flowers - wish I could smell them down the computer Hildred.

Thank you Ruth, - you are right, I'm sure. Hoya, not Hosta - this plant was given to me and I must have mistaken the name at that time!!!

Beautiful and winter blooming plants are so special (I remember).
