I planted some bulbs this morning. Honestly, despite my checking every fifteen, twenty minutes, they haven't started growing yet. It's been four whole hours! I think they're defective.

In other news, I saw a freaky looking bird in my backyard. Really, really freaky. Black and white striped, with red slashes on its head like an airbrushed VW van. Plus, it was tiny. Sparrow sized. As best as I can tell, after blowing the dust off my bird book and looking through it, it was a baby red-cockaded woodpecker. What the heck are you doing here in graffiti-land, baby red-cockaded woodpecker? Where's your mommy? You need to find some actual woods to be in.

Edited to add: Bingo! It's a yellow-bellied sapsucker. I kid you not. An actual yellow-bellied sapsucker. Who knew?

Note: Four and a half hours, and still no flowers! (Yes, I'm joking. I know they won't bloom until tomorrow.) (Yes, that was joking, too.)
