Can Spring be just around the corner?

This morning while having my second cuppa, Kedj brought me a very light green pot, not too big, not too small. "Just look, they're all kapakahi." Incidentally that is Hawaiian for all really mixed up. And they were. Some sideways, some slanted, some curled. You see, whatever bulbs they are, have started to sprout. They are smallish so they're not daffodils, they're not narcissus, probably not crocus, possibly grape hyacinths. The amazing part is they've not only started to sprout 2" green things, each bulb has done its thing and divided, forming two little bulbs. So, since they were sitting on top of the soil, I just pulled them out and broke up the planting medium with the handle end of my fork, separated the bulblets and replanted the little guys back into the pot. On another note we have some garden soil to amend the ground where we want to plant the wisteria. Mrs. Wister hasn't complained, much, just lost a few leaves during the summer. We must plant it soon. After all, this is the reason Cupcake and CC worked so hard on the trellis. Our Boston fern is swelling out of its pot, the one hanging over the kitchen counter. He came down this morning to get a good soaking in the sink. Now, he'll probably get hung over the water jug where there is ample light.


  • Grape hyacinths! So pretty! Are you forcing them or waiting til spring?

  • I'm not forcing, they're just doing their own thing. Our weather seems to be going from cool to's supposed to be in the 80's tomorrow. When will we know it's spring?
