If Safeway hadn’t run out of green onions during shelter-in-place, we wouldn’t have started growing them. If I hadn’t had to look on the bright side after a tooth extraction, I wouldn’t have had smoothies for a month, and we wouldn’t have so many yogurt tubs lying around. If I hadn’t transferred the green onions into the yogurt tubs, I wouldn’t have watched the most beautiful flower take shape.
Before the first flower started to wilt, I attempted to press it with several heavy books in the house.
What I hadn’t anticipated was how moist the flower was! I grabbed a paper towel to soak up the extra moisture. Good that there was a layer of parchment paper underneath.
This setback made me adore the intricate little parts even more than before.
I transferred every tiny bit into A Little Something that I plan to share with our lovely neighborhood.
