It finally happened!!

You know all those things that you put in the top of the closet because you 'might need them' sometime in the future?

Well, a year or so ago, when I bought new sheets and pillowcases, they came in these little cloth packages that matched the sheets. They were cute and looked like they could be useful. Sometime. In the future. So up they went to the top shelf of the hall closet.

Fast forward to yesterday. I noticed my hyacinth bulbs and tulip bulbs were trying to sprout and, in a panic, I looked up what to do on the internet. They recommended putting them in a cold place, like the back of the fridge so they would go back into dormancy.

Not having any paper bags, I knew plastic wouldn't do, so, looking through the closets, I was so happy to see them! I labelled them with a magic marker sharpie, dropped the bulbs in, used the little velcro closer and popped them into the fridge.

Hopefully, they will be OK there until time to plant.

Yay!

I love finding a use for something that I've stashed away - sounds like your solution was perfect. Happy week ahead.

I do things like that all of the time, thinking I will use them later. Glad it worked out for you!!

I know the feeling! Sometimes things wait for 25 years before they are used.....groetjes Hetty

That's a great idea for the use of the sack. I really enjoyed your last two posts with the art wall and the wall tiles. It's great to see kids get involved in art projects like that, I'm sure they loved it. And what a nice tribute to the settlement at Rangawahia Hall.

Yeah we have the same here We have lots of daffodils already coming up and you can also see many of them 2 months too early in Hagley Park. Great that you were able to save your bulbs. Fingers crossed

It's always a good feeling when what we save to use later is actually used later, lol. I hope your hyacinths recover.
