When it comes to planting bulbs in the fall for color in the spring, I'm not always on top of the job.
I think it has something to do with being burned out from gardening throughout the hot summer.
Last fall I was intrigued by a bag of bulbs that was a mix of blue, yellow and white.
Hard to pass up that combination.
Now that spring has sprung, I'm glad I didn't pass it up.
I think they are rewarding me with a
cheery springtime welcome into my
blue/yellow & white home.
This week has been incredibly beautiful.
Warm enough to open the windows and blow out the winter cooties and eat lunch on the patio. I plan to enjoy every possible moment out there before the hot, humid stuff arrives.
I hope that you, too, are noticing subtle signs of spring's arrival.
Just so you know that it's not all flowers and fresh air here.
It's also the season for dusting the pollen off of the front door and the outdoor furniture not to mention the cars.
I guess this explosion of blooms comes at a price.
Note to self: Make the effort to plant those fall bulbs. Come springtime, you'll be so glad you did!
