And Now For Something a Little Different...

I played with another flautist for a fundraising event a couple of weeks ago. It was a High Tea and the food was great.

But isn't it nice when the organizers give you a "little something" for helping out?

Flowers, for instance, are lovely.

One problem:-

Beautiful sentiment expressed very poetically on the card about how with a little TLC these bulbs will spring forth to life.

Have I previously mentioned my black thumbs?

The chance that these poor bulbs are going to make it to flowers?

... Approximately None!

(I'm certain that I heard them screaming "Nooooo, not her!" as they were presented to me (Along with a sigh of relief from all the other pots). Also heard them scream when the pot tipped over in the back of the car on the way home, spreading potting mix liberally across the floor of the car. There are two bulbs - at least it isn't solitary confinement as well as torture.)

You have to grow your own thank you gift?
Poor bulbs AND poor you.

Found you via Rhubarb :-)

Ha, that's really funny! (Although not so funny for the bulbs.)

That is the WIERDEST gift I have ever seen someone get! Wow....

Ha! Funny post! Will check them out when we visit on Friday.

All the best to you and your little bulbs.

Looks like something that would make a great slightly-belated Mothers' Day gift for your mum. She'll never know... oh, but she reads your blog.

Ok, I'm laughing. Cute idea, but umm, yeah, I don't have a green thumb either, so I get where you're coming from!
