Promise of Things to Come


My daughter gave me a bag of six bulbs she bought on sale.

I found some rocks and a container to rest the root ends just in the water. There are four in this container and two of them have really sprouted.

These two I started later and the roots are just reaching into the water.
By starting at different times I should have blooms spread over some weeks. The promise of things to come.

I also have some herbs growing in water. This bunch from the CSA includes basil, sage, cilantro and rosemary.  I take a pinch when I need some.

My kitchen windowsill is full.
