I’m going home for awhile to work on the cabin soon. The closer I get to being on my own land in my own cabin again the harder it is to focus on anything else. I’m taking plants to start permaculture landscaping-some tulips I found deeply discounted at a florist, paperwhites that arrived at my rental by surprise, larkspur, and strawberries. There is Russian sage and thyme waiting at my parents’ house for transplant, too.
The paperwhites were funny. I was walking one night and someone had thrown a bunch (as in about half a shopping bag full) on the curb and into the street. Thinking they must be wild onions, I collected them, took them back to my rental, and tucked them in the dirt along side the house since some were pretty small. Soon, there were odd bulbous shapes sticking up. I thought those were strange onions. Then they started blooming. Paperwhites! I would have been happy for the onions, but I’m thrilled to have the paperwhites. And it appears that most of them will survive.
I love flower bulbs.
I’m looking forward to other things in the yard, too, in seeing my garage for the first time in person, and in working on the interior of my small house. Not much longer!!!
