Nothing Needed

Long ago, I bought some dwarf tulip bulbs and went thru the forcing rigamarole to get indoor blooming before planting the bulbs.  Nothing but leaves came up.  Feh.  Tossed the bulbs out back.  Guess what happened about a year later.

Yes, the bulbs survived and put out leaves.  And flower stalks.  Which bloomed.

Year after year, the discarded tulips bloom in spring, while I do nothing for them.  Maybe they are old Yankees like me: compulsively self-reliant.

  1. ❤ Some lovely implications (or is that inferences?) here…

    Sometimes, what seems like attentive care is, well, “forcing”.

    Sometimes, apparent neglect is, instead, letting go, allowing things to be what they will be.
