Planted bulbs for flowers
For Valentine's Day some friends of mine gave me a mylar balloon and some bulbs for flowers. Since my motto is if I can't eat it there's not much reason to grow it, I was taken back a bit by this gift. I could understand if they gave me a balloon and some vegetable seeds, or a strawberry plant, but flowers just for the sake of flowers?? Even my mom gave me a potted kale plant. This afternoon we had a break in the rain so I decided to go out into the front and plant the bulbs. They will be really pretty when they grow in the spring, or next year if it's too late for this year. Why not? I figure on this five acres there had to be a little space for something that we can't eat or the animals can't eat, they aren't medicinal, or of some use other than just to look at. Plant a flower. Boy, does that sound stupid! But why not? If I did, you can too!
