I bought this pot of bulbs yesterday afternoon at the supermarket.
Carried it carefully home in my bag along with the groceries.
I find it hard to resist the lure of fresh green shoots.
Something so irresistible about them.
I love looking at them, knowing that at some point in the not too distant future, the pretty little flower heads of tete a tete narcissi will eventually appear from amidst this greenery.
I like that I can buy living greenery alongside my groceries.
I like that I can choose to discard the brown plastic pot they are living in and find an alternative.
I like that I can recycle glass jam jars, of which I have an impressive stash.
I decide that Shoots + Stripes will be perfect together.
I choose blue and white, a la Cornishware.
Because I have a soft spot for Cornishware + Bulbs.
I sit a while with yarn + hook, with blue + white.
And Stripes are made.
Stripes to wrap around the roots of the shoots.
I am so looking forward to Stripes + Shoots + Flowers.
Because then I will know that Spring isn't too far away.
