Roots & Shoots: Forced Tulip Bulbs

 Little Florist

Although this was a major cheat (we were supposed to start from bulbs, but bought the tulips and washed off the roots!), we still get to witness plants in action! 'Sand and Sisal' featured a Forced Tulip Bulbs post http://sandandsisal.com/2013/02/how-to-force-tulip-bulbs-in-water_19.html that was a much-needed reminder that Spring is coming.
Right?

 Roots & Shoots

Both roots and shoots are visible for a little lesson in botany.
In our case, the flower buds are already present (since we bought them near-blooming!)
With some water, sun and a little more TLC than likely necessary, we're hoping these tulips force us right into Springtime!!
