If there's one thing I love to see in early spring, it's bulb flowers such as tulips, daffodils, hyacinth, etc. But with the exception of a few daffodils, I've never gotten around to planting anything. Bulbs, as you know, must planted in the fall.
So this year, I finally got around to picking up a large pack of tulips and a smaller pack of hyacinth bulbs.
I conscripted the girls and we went into the yard to plant bulbs. We started out planting them along the fenceline.
Lydia was curious about what we were doing.
"No no! Don't eat it!"
I did the digging...
...and the girls slipped the bulbs into the holes.
However we couldn't plant entirely along the fenceline, because the closer we got to the driveway, the more gravel we encountered until I simply couldn't dig into it any more.
So we moved into the fenced garden area.
We had enough bulbs to line nearly two full sides of the garden. Hopefully next spring we'll have a pretty dash of color!
