Growing

I was so excited when one evening I saw a couple shoots in the area where I planted my bulbs last fall. I’m not an experienced gardener, but I do have aspirations, and it was exciting to see any sign of growth. I went out the next morning to take photographic evidence of my success and found this.


Evidence

I don’t know if it was a rabbit, squirrel or some other rodent, but at least the left me one intact shoot.

Since then I have seen even more pop up and these have continued to grow. They just look like they had a little haircut. I’m still anxiously waiting any signs of blooms. The bulbs in the pot on the deck haven’t shown any sign of life, so I think I should have let them winter in a more protected area, say the garage. I may give them a few more weeks, but if nothing pops up I’ll chock it up to a lesson learned and plant a few annuals in that pot.

Speaking of popping, my belly has finally started to get that pregnant look, instead of that she ate too many Girl Scout Cookies look. Most of my normal tops still fit, I like my winter stuff loose, but I had to give up my regular pants a long time ago.

And can I just say that snow in April is just WRONG! At least we just got a dusting instead of the many inches others got

  1. I think that might be a rabbit. We had the same thing happen to alot of our tulips one year. They need to genetically engineer tulips that taste bad to rabbits.
