I bought some tiny yellow daffodils at the grocery store today. I went with the intention of buying a pot roast. The roasts were kind of pricey and I didn't like the look of what was available, so I spent my money on spring flowers instead. There are tulips in that arrangement, but they've yet to bloom.
Remember the green pottery bowl I just had to buy? The one with swirls and little fishes swimming inside ? It's now providing a base for a green tropical plant.
Darn! I got the microwave in the pic.
Will try again.
Like a mother hen I watched and waited for the first sprout to come alive. Yes! Several more followed suit. Oh, I was going to have such lovely flowers.
Patiently I watched the sprouts turn into long green stems. That grew and grew and grew. Finally, I realized that that's all I was ever gonna get. No flowers.
Now I realize it's because bulbs need a cool period before "forcing". And I had bought them from the gardening section of Walmart. They were supposed to have been planted in the fall. Not forced indoors.
Never mind - I enjoyed the green foliage anyway.
