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.
