This is the first time I ever grow flower from bulbs and it took some convincing to try growing from bulbs this year. To be honest, I don't know much about flowers compare to vegetables. Thanks Sue for the encouragement! Berry Gnome gave me no reason of not trying flower bulbs this year. No chance of backing away from the original plan when suddenly you are given a paper bag full of flower bulbs last autumn. I was so speechless at first because I was so happy of receiving those flower bulbs. I think I bombarded Berry Gnome with a lot of questions on how to grow them. Berry Gnome you given us some sunshine in the middle of winter! The first bulb to bloom in our garden is jonquil. I spy buds last week but was so busy to keep track on which day will it bloom.
Tadaa~ Our first jonquil bloom. I still cannot pronounce the word "jonquil' properly.
Many of you have wonder how cold is our winter is. I guess by now you will probably can estimate how our weather is here for us if you grown jonquil before. Jonquils have just started blooming in our garden. If you live in very snowy winter region, our mid-winter will probably be your early spring weather.
I have not forgotten about the black pearl give-away last month, I was just waiting for those black pearls to be polished that is the main reason. Drum roll please...and the winner is
