bulbs in, bulbs out


bulbs in::daffodils with a little quartz crystal to cheer on the daffodil deva and also enhance this feng shui bagua. It seems the helpful people and travel area is somewhat lacking.


bulbs out::marguerite sweet potato vine, ipomoea batatas. I was cleaning out patio pots and out they popped, so round and rosy. Guess I'll try to save them following these instructions from NDSU. I wonder why they are so drastically different in shape. Don't look a gift horse in the mouth comes to mind. :)

I have never tried to save over the impomoea, but you have inspired me to do so this year. If nothing else, the shrews will have something to nibble on - lol. Question - when you were planting your bulbs, were you tempted to see if the papery skins would dye fabric like onion skins? I picked up some and have been pondering it. I am tempted to go get some hyacinths, just for the deep red/purple skins. LOL! Nothing is safe from experiment, I guess. Love the quartz in with the bulbs.

I love seeing the quartz crystal in with the bulbs.
Many years ago I was in Santa Fe and the person I was
with knew the area well...places tourist did not know.
I was taken to a small mountain that was only known well by locals. There were crystals sticking up through the dirt. The indigenous people considered the land sacred. I understand why...it is magical.

Nancy, it truly was a surprise. Thought one of the dogs' balls got in there!

Cindy, so much beauty this time of year, even this!

Trish, thanks. You know I didn't really realize about the feng shui bagua at first, just felt the urge to place a crystal there and then it dawned on me. I have been having a heck of a time finding various workers, etc. for house stuff so hopefully this'll help.

Deanna, and they're even edible. Though I bet they aren't that great!

Jeannie, hope it works for us to save them. It didn't even cross my mind to use the skins of the daffodil bulbs! Now I wish I would've thought about it. I hope you try it out and let us know what happens. :)

Marie, oh my, that must've been incredible. What a gift to have been taken there! Some friends used to go to Arkansas to harvest crystals, think I still have a few, and that's the closest I've gotten to their original place in the Earth.
