today i am grateful for...
finding bulbs to plant indoors at the chelsea whole foods. 'specially since ery'one had told me i was far too late. my mother has been suggesting i attempt to grow some flowers indoors, and has even sent up some window boxes. she is now pushing for pansies, which may be my next attempt, if this one isn't a total bust.
i love me some daffodils. first sign of spring, in georgia at least. here in new york, the cherry blossom explosion is the true marking of the new season, but who's really nitpicking?
i'm nervous to see the paperwhite outcome. i'm certainly no amy merrick when it comes to green, growing things. not by a long shot! oh well, if all else fails i'll tend to an orchid, like my dear friend john gardner. i've heard they are fairly simple to raise, no? or maybe i'll just stick to supporting my local florist's cut flower business.
*if any green thumbed enthusiasts can recommend easy, low maintenance indoor flowers and plants, i am up for suggestions. any tips or tricks would be much appreciated!
