Yesterday was a crappy day. Actually it was the end of Tuesday that was the crappy part and then it carried over to yesterday. I was very upset and emotional and by the evening I didn't know quite what to do with myself. I didn't blog most of the day, or do any housework or much of anything really. Didn't even watch TV or read. Anyway, but by the evening I was not in a good state.
Hubby did his very best as he always does and to help cheer me up he made a gooseberry fool for dessert. It was delicious, stewed gooseberries, custard and whipped cream all mixed together. The perfect combination of sweet and sharp. Although it was a lovely thing for him to have done and it did make me feel better, I was still rather emotional.
Then after dinner, as he does, hubby went out to do a garden patrol. He likes to take a look and see what has grown or been eaten or flowered. All of a sudden he came rushing in and said "you have to come and see this, you have to come and see this!!!". He was practically bouncing up and down he was so excited!
So out we went to the garden and we stood by one of the yucca pots and he said "look". I was thinking yes, what, I don't see anything.
Then hubby pointed out this.
And then this.
I know that you are probably wondering what the excitement was. Well, a few weeks ago now we split our yucca plant in two. One part has been doing well, as you can see (left).
The other though was looking pretty darn sick and rather dead (right). I said to leave it though and see what happened. And look, this is what has happened!! I know it isn't exciting to most people, but it was to us, and more importantly it was just the lift that I needed.
So thank you hubby and thank you yucca gods for looking after our plants so well! It looks as though both yuccas are going to make it! Yay!!!!
Oh, and hubby wants you to see his hostas as well and how well they are flowering!
The crappy stuff had still happened, but I have a strong belief that there is always a silver lining in every cloud, even if it is a tiny little scrap of silver, and yesterday I found that there were three little silver scraps to make the crappy less crappy!
