uncanny smarts from a very dumb bulb

Hi All,


Today the north wind was blowing in a nice cool breeze. So I started potting up some bulbs that had outgrown their pot last winter. I had them tucked away in my house for the constant temp and humidity free climate. Lachenalia uridiflora, their name tag showed. When I looked inside the paper bag I noticed that they had already started to sprout. If they had a voice I think they would say that I was too slow at getting them into some soil. 


I am amazed that they know the proper time without a wrist watch, calendar or even a sun dial. If I could just get them to learn to plant themselves, then I could sit back and just enjoy the blooms.
