On these cold winter days I have a little springtime blooming in my kitchen. Back in the fall I planted some hyacinth bulbs in pots and set them by my kitchen windows. I have patiently watered and waited, and now I have finally been rewarded with some brilliant color beginning to open up.There was only a little green showing on January 1, but I was happy to see that the bulbs were growing.
After emerging from the dirt the progress was evident each day.
My Christmas cactus also budded up for a second showing. When I was working as a counselor, another counselor in my office gave me a little start for this plant from hers, and now it has grown to be huge.
I love having a little color inside during the winter months. Indoors or outdoors, watching my plants make me happy.
