After forcing bulbs, my first tulip blooms have arrived!
Happy Friday! I’ve been enjoying all of the blog posts celebrating the arrival of spring, but we’re still getting snow storms making it seem so far away. Inside our house is another story with the appearance of my first bloom. Remember the forced tulip bulbs I started back in January? So fresh and pretty!
I originally planted four pots with tulip bulbs in mid-January. They started out in our basement storage room where it’s quite cool.
The first week of February I brought the first two pots up to our kitchen. The other two were left downstairs until the beginning of March. I planned it that way so I’d have blooms throughout the spring season rather than all at once.
It’s amazing to think this is what I started with…
And now these gorgeous flowers!
Although I only have one bloom so far, there are several others getting close. I’m thinking the timing will be perfect for Easter. I’m sure I’ll supplement with a few grocery store bulbs to add a little more colour. Perhaps some daffodils or hyacinths? Do you have a favourite spring bloom?
Is spring out in full force where you live or are you only seeing glimpses like me? Perhaps adding some tulip blooms to your indoor space is just what you need.
Wishing you a warm and sunny weekend!
