I Got Lucky

In a check out impulse I bought a not very promising bag of bulbs at my garden center last fall. I set them up in the basement where they were very slow to show any activity, and very slow to throw up flower shoots when I finally brought them upstairs. I think my house is so cold that they didn’t get much hint that spring, even a false indoor spring, was approaching. But the wait was worth it. I have recently become enamored of pink daffodils, and just by chance, here they are. Lit by the sun I can almost believe spring will arrive outside.

    Those pink daffs are lovely. They don’t seem to last very long in NC, but one can dream.. 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by Garden Grit!

    Your pink daffodils are just lovely – perhaps next year I’ll try some in my garden.

    Great idea about the mulch – our city also offers free mulch from the green waste recycling, but you have to go pick it up.

    Sweet Bay – Last year we had a long cool (I mean cold) spring and the daff season was also gloriously long.
    Camellia – I live in hope. Like every gardener.
    Chloe – Lucky you! I wouldn’t mind picking it up if it were free.
    Thank you all for visiting.
