I was cleaning out my desk at work last week and came upon this poor struggling bulb. A year (or maybe even two) ago, I brought a few paperwhite bulbs to work to grow. They did well in the office, and after they died for the year, I just took the whole pot, bulbs, dirt and all and shoved it in a drawer. Well, I found the pot when cleaning out the drawer and one of the bulbs was trying so hard to grow. It had a tiny, white, un-nurtered start struggling to survive. I love plants and gardening, so I felt really bad that this poor plant was stuck in that drawer and forgotten. I immediatly took it out, cleaned it up, watered it, and am proud to say it is growing healthy now! This was taken the day after I found it, when the small, half-inch white start was starting to turn yellow. Today, a week later, it is a 2.5 inch green shoot!
I really miss gardening. I crave going outside and cleaning up my yard. I did go out and move some leaves around and saw a few tulips starting to show through the dirt over the weekend. Spring cannot come soon enough!
