After telling you the other day how I have a brown thumb, I decided I would give growing something another shot and see if things had changed. Enter Operation Paperwhites. Seems pretty easy. Plunk bulbs in a little water. No dirt required. Should see some flowers in about 4-6 weeks. Provided I don’t kill them.
That little guy above looks like a duck, don’tcha think? I’m assuming the emerging shoots will start pointing skyward as soon as they are set upright. Every one of these little bulbs has a messed up sense of direction. Life in a dirty garden bin will do that to you, I guess.
I’m a little nervous of the plants becoming top heavy and falling over once they have grown straight and tall with a beautiful burst of white flowers on top. (See, I’m staying positive.) I might need to add more glass beads to hold ‘em up. We shall see…
Here is a beach glass snowflake for you! Whoops, got a little side tracked…
Our ducky-look-a-like gets anchored in a bed of beach glass. Grow little roots! Grow! I might be a week or so late in starting Operation Paperwhites, but if I’m lucky I will have some pretty little white blooms between Christmas and New Years. I’m following the directions here from the bh&g people.
Hope your week is off to a great start!
