In the garden or in a lovely vase, nothing represents spring’s finery more than tulips, hyacinths and daffodils. Even though the contribution of spring bulbs is short lived, it is indeed spectacular when they are in full bloom in my garden. Having planted over 3,000 bulbs by myself I might add, check out my post ‘Oh, My Bulb Mania in my garden’, today I am enjoying the splendor and color of all my hard work!
Here are some photo highlights of my favorite spring bulb groupings in my garden…..
I know my days are numbered to enjoy the beauty of my bulbs, especially since due to very warm temperatures my Spring came earlier than usual this year! I’ve more to look forward to though, I already see my roses swelling with buds …..
Bulbs planted: Tulips- Best Red, Mt Tacoma, Angelique, Strike Me Pink,French Rose Blend and Maureen. Daffodils- Ice Follies, Carlton and February Gold.
My tulips are pre-chilled (in the refrigerator) in October for 8-10 weeks and then planted in December.
