A long time ago (one year? Two?), our daughter dug up daffodil bulbs from an abandoned yard and brought us a big IKEA shopping bag filled with them. I set the bag on the ground near the spot where we sort cans and bottles for recycling.
Occasionally I'd walk by the bag and remember that I ought to put those bulbs in the ground.
Then I forgot about the bag as it became hidden by blackberry brambles and long grass.
A couple of days ago, I was walking past the spot and glanced over. It seems the bulbs were determined to sprout and weren't waiting any longer for me to take action.
Has this kind of thing happened in your jewelry-making? I'd like to hear your story.
