I have been neglecting my blog again in favor of facebook posts. I hope to rectify that, and begin with the thought of a new season. We didn't have much of a winter, and so far we aren't having much of a spring either. The world is stuck in some kind of transitional mode that is really no season at all. Nevertheless, I planted tulip bulbs earlier and they struggled to put up leaves. I could see then that I had put them too far apart, so dug them up and replanted them. In the process I broke a tiny bud off its mother bulb. Since it had started to grow, I brought it inside and put it in a glass of water. It seemed impossible that it would continue to grow, but it did. That little bud is now a proud and proper tulip.......way ahead of its outside companions
Meanwhile my household has increased with the addition of two parakeets and a cat. I'll save the story of those acquisitions for their own post. At least I have begun again.
