Awww yeaaah! The bulbs are in the ground! Go grow my little pretties, GROW! Okay, yes, lay dormant for the winter first… gotta get your beauty rest I suppose. But come Spring and Summer I hope to see 60 daffodils, 24 dutch irises, 24 crocuses (crocii?) 12 tulips, and 8 alliums, plus the medley of daffodils and gladioli I planted late this past Spring. That’s 128 bulbs in two days. I should have worn gloves and my hands sting, but I used muscles I ordinarily wouldn’t use, plus hopefully made the front of our unit a little more beautiful.
I planted the daffodils kind of randomly to create a wild look. That’s as much planning as I put into this project. Maybe I’ll see what comes up in the Spring and put some annuals in between them. There’s a lot of tree roots in our little patch of soil so perhaps some strategically placed potted plants are in order? Who knows. I barely know what I am doing as it is, but I’m sick of looking at the bare patch in front of our house. I figure if it’s in the ground though at least least it has a fighting chance for survival. Anything that has to rely on me is doomed.
