Impeachment

The tulips have cast me withering glances!
Oh miserable day.
But Laurie told me to pluck the flowers off and leave the leaves there so that they can feed the bulbs. And then i have to refrigerate the bulbs/bury them to give them cold-treatment during the winter, so that they can bloom in spring again. I told her i’d bury them in the Risley yard in the dead of the night :) and she looked appalled. Apparently you can’t keep tulip bulbs in the fridge with things like apples or other fruits that emit some sort of gas (ethene, according to Justine), because they sterilise the bulbs. How cool is that! Apples – the new contraceptives.
