8 The Return of the Brown Thumb

>> Thursday, January 17, 2013

It’s that time of year again. The time of year when I forget how terribly brown my green thumb is and I take off on an I-can-grow-this tangent. Maybe I’m needing a new project? Maybe it’s that I’m itching for springtime temps?….or maybe it’s the precious little package that arrived on my doorstep from my friends in the gardening blog world?

Two amaryllis bulbs (I only knew what they were after I read the label) perfectly packaged and ready for planting.

Luckily, I had two white ceramic thrift shop pots on hand to house my newest friends.

While step-by-step instructions on how to plant, water and care for these little babies may seem excessive to some, to my fellow lack-luster gardeners and myself, they are much appreciated.

We’ll see what happens over the next few weeks with these guys, but in the meantime, I have a precious new little basket to play with.

Love bulbs in early Spring! They're the pop of color we need this time of year. (Seriously, where's Spring already!!)
