The Mystery Plants!

All at once on a cold, yet sort of sunny day back in February, two little clumps of mystery plants broke their way through the wet soil. These little guys were a mystery because,

#1. I am no expert on garden plants

#2. I couldn't remember what came up here in this spot last year

#3. However, I am not a complete nimcom
poop and was fairly certain these would be tulips or daffodils when they grew up

So I decided to document their progress with weekly snapshots. Then the flowers would have the memories to look back on when they are old enough to appreciate it.

Growing...

and growing...

almost there, soon I'll be able to tell what the little buggers are!

Not long now...

Ah Ha, I see yellow, that tells me they're daffodils because there are no yellow tulips planted.

Wait for it, wait for it..

TAH DAH, the official verdict is in and the winner is...
the DAFFODIL!

That was fun! I had no idea, either! I like that color of daffodil. Looks like egg yolk! ;) Now pick some for a vase before they die, those don't bloom too long!

Wow! I was shocked that I knew what they were by the first picture. I normally don't know what most plants are but I knew these. They are so pretty and cheerful! I love them.

Hugs,
