A Bulb for All Seasons

Many of us think that bulbs only mean daffodils and tulips. But there are bulbs for all seasons. My favorites for spring and summer are tuberous begonias. They’re shade-loving plants that will even do well in the house. You can get upright plants or cascading ones for baskets. They can be small, single flowers or large, double-ruffled flowers. There’s a begonia for every taste. You can get them as bulbs now at the nursery. They come in packages with pictures of the bloom. Pick the colors and blooms that you like best.

Plant the tubers round-side down in soil with lots of peat moss. They like a rich soil, and the moss helps to keep the soil most. They’re grown in bright, indirect light. After all danger of frost has passed, you can move them outdoors to a partially shady spot. Water them well and they’ll give you an abundance of blossoms till fall. Then you can stop watering and let the bulbs dry until spring, where you can start the process all over again.

Let’s affirm: I am a beautiful flower that is blossoming more and more each day. I delight in my world, and my world delights in me.

    Let's also affirm: I am a beautiful gardener who is planting more and more bulbs and seeds each day. :-) Ms. Hay, your affirmations are growing in my children! They don't even know I'm planting them. Happy Spring!!!

    Sowing the seeds of love, sending our love to our beloved Earth, co-creating beauty and sharing it with the world- all those things and much more with just a bulb or a seed! Thank you, Louise :)

    In creating a "sacred space" or creative environment, I like the Royal Amethyst Tea Rose as part of my mantra. Falling Water in the mix, great sounds of I AM...I may be on to something here. Happy Louise is sharing her garden wisdom. I trust her instincts and its a good way to connect on a spiritual level. :)

    I read one of your beautiful writings, recently about caring for your inner child or something along those lines. I cannot find it anywhere. I visualized the work around my inner child and have held her hand through every meditation If you know the one I refer to, could you re post it. Thank you

    We can grow beautiful things and watch them slowly produce leaves, buds and eventually flowers. We sow our inner seeds and often forget to nourish them with love, hope and self esteem and they do not flourish but wither and are unable to flower.

    What beautiful words. We are all like fowers. We come into bloom at different times. We grow at our own rate. And each of us is unique

    What a perfect universe. A place where everything benefits from the perfection that is always becoming more.
