Planting with PURPOSE

Posted by Sarah Lyon on 10/21/2020 12:00:00 PM

Friends, it is BEAUTIFUL outside.

This week we are embracing our inner Lupine Lady, the beloved Ms. Rumphius, and planting flower bulbs. If you haven't picked up your bulbs at HROA, please do so!

Flower bulbs are special: you put them in the ground, forget about them, and then are pleasantly surprised when you witness their colors come alive in the spring. I love the duality of nature's purpose-- so simple and complex at the same time. 

I encourage you to plant some bulbs for yourself, but also plant some in a place that might delight a stranger. 

Maybe near a sidewalk or along a city trail. 

The bulbs include: Tulips, Daffodils, Crocus, and Grape Hyacinth.

Larger bulbs should be planted 6 inches deep and smaller bulbs planted 3 inches deep. Cover with soil, generously water it one time, then wait.

If you want to revisit the slideshow from our Google Meet, you can do so HERE. It has a few slides that will help you reflect on your own purpose as well. 

Thank you for SHOWING UP and being present.
