A Touch of Springtime

Back in November, a friend gave me four mini daffodil bulbs. I bought a small robin’s egg blue pot, and planted the bulbs tightly together in the planter.

I watered it, then stuck it on the back corner of my refrigerator, where it would stay cool and mostly dark. I made a note in my calendar for mid-January, to pull the pot out and place it in the window where it would get indirect sunlight.

Occasionally, I watered the pot in the fridge. More often, I forgot to look at it. Until it popped up on my calendar. I removed the planter from the fridge, gave it a good soaking, and set it in the windowsill.

I noticed that one bulb had popped through the soil, so I assumed that only three would potentially blossom.

I continued to keep the soil moist, and moved the planter into the window each day. Within a week, I had this:

The next week, my first bloom, plus lots of green:

Today, a second adorable bloom:

Springtime in February!

    Peggy would you ever consider writing a guest post for me? I’d love my readers to hear about how God sustains you through life, how your relationship affects your life everyday. What do you think?
