Anna’s Nest

I'm sure there's an analogy here somewhere...

17 April 06

About a week ago some beautiful tulips that I planted last fall were looking very promising:
tulips!

Only a couple of days later:
tulips!
tulips!
Wow! Isn’t that just the most amazing thing?!! I did absolutely nothing except dig a hole, give it a bit of fertilizer, and water it (a very little bit). And even what I did do probably didn’t make that big of a difference. The potential for beauty was all stored in that brown bulb I saw last fall.

The bad news is that I got so excited about it that I enthusiastically downloaded too many pictures to my Flickr account – I think maybe I maxed it out until next month – so you’ll have to wait on the other two kinds of bulbs that have come up in the past couple of days.

  1. Those are very pretty. You picked good bulbs.

  3. Anna-

    You inspire me to plant flowers; specifically bulbs. Tulips and mums are my favorite flowers, but I always put it off one more season.

  4. Thanks Bekah! :)

    You’re welcome to use some of the pictures I took as inspiration if you like.

    I know what you mean about putting it off…I seem to do a lot of that these days, and not just with tulips!

  5. Those are GORGEOUS! I miss good old “American” flowers. The only beautiful flowers I’ve seen lately are either the size of my pinky nail or covered in horrible 1/2” long “DON’T TOUCH ME” thorns, though I have to admit, it is kind impressive: A beautiful blossom surrounded by it’s own armor.
