My sister and I are going to exchange photos this month. Theme = autumn. Here's my start: Narcissus bulbs from last Sunday's market. I planted about eight of them, plus a few Hyacinth bulbs left over from my mom's visit last Easter, in a big pot on my front porch covered in about 3 inches of dirt from my building's front yard (according to the bulb purveyor at the market, potting soil isn't good for them, they prefer plain-old dirt for the sand and clay). Like all my plantings, they're more or less an experiment. I'm hoping they make it, but in the mean time I wish there was room for something else in the pot too since it's just sitting full of dirt on my little stoop. . .
