Plants don’t lie!

The bulbs that I forced in my fridge and brought out to “spring” in my home a few weeks ago have bloomed. They are dwarf iris, not crocuses. While I forgot what kind of bulbs I had planted in the pot, bulbs are sure of their own identity. Probably some deep philosophical principle there, about being true to yourself. But my reaction was just to laugh when I came home from work and saw my “crocuses” blooming! Whatever their identity, a breath of spring to enjoy. I am really trying not to wish away winter, because I still have some personal goals to accomplish for January, and I don’t want time to fly by too fast. However, seeing the blooms on my dining room table is a nice preview of what we will start seeing outside in a month with the early varieties of bulbs. And apparently dwarf iris are good for forcing.
