The daffodils and hyacinths have come and gone.
Gone until next year.
The final act to our spring bulb show is the tulips.
So glad I decided to add some under the fountain last fall.
It makes for a cheery greeting when I open the front door.
Tulips behave like an annual here in the southern USA.
You might get a few blooms from them next year or you might not. If you want a reliable presentation it's best to dig them out and start with new bulbs in the fall.
I'm so glad to have received this catalogue in the mail.
Makes planning for next spring's garden so much easier.
Right now I can still see where the current bulbs bloomed and where it might be nice to add a few more. If I wait until fall to do this I have to guess at exactly where those bulbs are planted.
Yesterday I spent several hours whipping my perennial bed into shape. The weeds were doing their best to take over. Once this task was completed it was most pleasurable to prop my feet up and begin planning ahead for next year's garden. I don't always plan ahead, but when it happens it's a good feeling.
Hope your weekend is a Happy one.
