Growing Energy

the life of a bulb

the life of a bulb

Remember the Paperwhites?  Last time I forced bulbs into winter bloomming was in 2011. This year  I found a few dried-up bulbs in the back of a cupboard, could barely feel a small hard kernel inside layers of dried skin.  I placed those five bulbs in water and four still had life in them.

Focus today on growing energy!

    The bulbs that keep on giving!

    • You are so right…I almost threw the bulbs out because they felt like tissue paper layers but,like I said in my blog,there was a tiny nugget deep inside, so I took a chance to see if they would sprout.
