MV Obsession

My obsession with Martha's Vineyard.. phototography..genealogy and life in general and this and that…

The Answer Is …


The answer to the previous posts question is:    tulip bulbs.

Knowing how much I enjoyed the blooming tulips in February, my daughter Patty and family sent this the other day.

Inside the box was a picket fence container and inside the fence was:


After removing its packing material there was this pot that had little bulps peeking out:


The instructions said to let it sit in a sink of water for about half an hour… it was tricky since the only thing handy I had to  plug up the drain with was bubble wrap.. which, by the way was not a tight fit.


After its initial bath I then watered it, put it back in its picket fence container (which I think is adorable) and will keep a watchful camera eye on.


That’s it for my Spring gardening so far.  I can’t wait to see what color(s) these tulips are going to be.  Any guesses !  I’ll say yellow.

I'm married, I have two daughters and two grandchildren and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. This blog started out as strictly about Martha's Vineyard but over the years I've branched out to include other obsessions and interests. I enjoy photography and like sharing my photos here as well. Hope you enjoy :)
