Yes it does look as though someone has cut all the flowers of these plants and indeed they have as they were dead. However these are all either tulip or hyacinth bulbs and for the price I couldn't turn them down. I have stuck them in the basement to die back and will plant them out in the Spring when the ground is warm. Though I was just thinking about it, for you gardeners out there, should I wait until Fall?
Thanks for all your comments yesterday. I wasn't angry, mainly bemused that someone could come up with such a dreadful comment without fully knowing the facts?
Sunday was a great day. We never left the house all day. Dh finished off the trim down the basement and stairs. Now I have to fill in all the nail holes and sand and stain the wood trim that is inserted in between the tiles and wood flooring.
I stained the stairs last week and the smell was horrible, not helped by not being able to open the windows or doors because it was so cold. I am going to wait to varnish the stairs until I can open the windows and doors.
We had a cheats version of cabbage rolls for supper, the recipe is here.
