A Gardening Jackpot

Friday, May 10, 2013

I don't want to talk about my weight.

Not that there's anything wrong with it. I'm happy that it's staying below 150 as it hovers around the 148 mark going into the third week now. And I seem to be getting my waist back, so maybe I'm just changing shape without changing weight.

My garden is coming along beautifully. The early daffodils are dried up and done, but the front yard is filled with tulips now. And something wonderful happened! Some of my older tulips are naturalizing. Five or six years ago I planted five bulbs of a tulip called "Jackpot". I never thought anything about the name. But this year, all of a sudden, where each single bulb was planted, five tulips have grown. I have a clump of about 25 little "Jackpot" tulips! (I think I understand the name now.)

    Ooh I LOVE tulips! They're my favourite. I wish we had a garden so I could grow some.

    Good job for keeping your weight down.
    Love hearing about your garden, thank you for giving the name of those Tulips, sounds like the kind I would like.
