I hope everyone in the mid west is doing OK. I know you are all getting some bad storms right now. It has been ugly and rainy here all weekend long too.
It has also been very warm! So strange for this time of year after we've been having such cold temps.
The worst part of my weekend was being sick! I caught a terrible stomach bug on Thursday that hit me hard for about 24 hrs. Luckily, I'm much better now.
I lived on this stuff for a little while.
I graduated to something better this morning. Scrambled eggs and grits! (I sneaked in a smidgen of butter. shh)
But the weekend was not a total loss (unless you're counting the Ga Bulldogs game - Argh!) I did manage to do something that I had planned on all along, before I got sick.
Yep! Paper white bulbs. I bought them so I could force them to grow inside. I've seen several of you ladies doing it already, so I decided to give them a try myself. I have some fake ones, but think the real ones are so much prettier.
I planted one batch in this large galvanized tub.
They will stay in the kitchen. My 12 yr old said it looked like I was growing worms! LOL.
Then I separated the other batch in half and planted them in a silver container and a small galvanized container.
The silver one will probably go in the foyer and the other one I'll find a spot.
I hope these grow well. I've never grown them before but have heard it is very easy. You just put them in soil and add a little bit of water. Then hope the sun will finally shine to give them the other ingredient they need (unlike today). I'll keep you posted as to how they do.
Hope you are having a good Sunday so far and not in harms way of the storms out West of us.
