I had a small pot of freesias that got completely overlooked in 2012. No 
water at all, all year. Rediscovered it in late summer 2013 when I was 
repotting. Sh*t oh dear!

About half the corms (of 6) had vanished. Breathed heavily on the others 
(CO2 helps, right?), repotted, gave extra attention.

And today I have a flower! One corm of three has substantial textured 
peachy yellow flower open, lowest on the spike of 5 buds. No name, but 
lovely just the same. The other two corms are still teeny tiny but hope 
springs eternal for next year. Hope also springs that Spring will, 
eventually, arrive.

So sometimes our errors of omission with the watering can are forgiven.

Judy in New Jersey where the 6 inches of snow mid-week were followed by 
overnight temperatures of 5 degrees Fahrenheit on Thursday night, 1 
degree Fahrenheit last night. And daylight savings time begins tomorrow? 
I'd rather have saved some warmer weather!
