Thank you all who commented on Friday’s post. I have unpublished it now, as intended to do as we come up to another edition of WFNC tomorrow.
I was very touched by your comments and really appreciate the time you took to write them. I have not deleted them and will keep them to re-read when I am struggling.
For me and for other bulb growers in the Northern hemisphere, last week marked the start of the new season as the bulbs were watered again after their dry summer rest.
Some respond very quickly to water, others respond to cooler nights and were popping up flowers even before watering started. Come back tomorrow for When Fashion and Nature Collide. Meanwhile here are some bulbs and succulents in flower from the last few days. Some have been published already on Instagram.
Starting with a fast-responder. Watering was on Monday, secnd picture of shoots was on thursday, Flowers were on Saturday. Five days from watering to flowering. This is Habranthus tubispathus – one of the Rain Lilies.
