Feed Me Seymore-San…

During my gardening exploits, several times I have come across a bulb or root system that was planted by former owners of the house. Other times, I will have an annual go through it’s cycle, die back, and join my dirt/compost pile. In most cases, they are dried out or not viable anymore. Sometiomes though, I get one that refuses to die. In this case, the flower is pink. I do not know what it is yest as it has barely begun to bloom but I do know it is pink.

This bulb was found when cleaning out a pot to reuse. Instead of throwing t away, I absentmindedly placed it on the surface of my basil pot. There it stayed, through most of the fall/winter, being watered periodically. When the basil finally went the way of the rest of the garden for the year-end, the bulb was picked up. Lo and behold though, it had rooted. Not to be one to look past growing something, I planted it and placed it in my terrarium for the winter.

About a week ago, it started to bloom. It had already been growing some very nice and strong looking leaves. Now, it is getting to be white and pink. I am really looking forward to the process and am thinking it might be nice to get a few more bulbs in the future.
What is the moral of this story? Nature is and will continue to be.
