Fixation by Lightning
The energy from lightning causes nitrogen (N2) and water (H2O) to combine to form ammonia (NH3) and nitrates (NO3). Precipitation carries the ammonia and nitrates to the ground, where they can be assimilated by plants. (source - Chemistry.com)
In any case, I'm really looking forward to the tulip blooms. My favorites are the white and pink varieties and I've decided to make notes this year, as they flower, to see where I need to fill in with more bulbs in the fall.
Pink is not just a color its an attitude. Anonymous
