Forcing Spring Flowers

Bulbs2Winter is certainly taking its sweet time this year, isn’t it? Actually, it doesn’t bother me that much- I love how calm the air seems when it snows, and I love bundling up against the cold. I think what I miss about warm weather, though, is seeing grass and trees and other signs of life!

As I was picking through flowers at the grocery store this week, I remembered a few pins I’d seen at the end of December about growing flowers indoors- they called it ‘forcing’ bulbs. I thought it might be nice to see something growing in our house, so I stopped by the nursery and grabbed a handful of bulbs, founds some stones at the dollar store, and shopped around my house for glass containers. I’m very rarely successful at keeping plants alive, but I’m crossing my fingers that these guys bloom into some gorgeous spring flowers!
