Who Ordered All Those Bulbs Anyway?
Every fall, I am done with the summer and ready to move into our fall/winter seasons. Or I’m almost done cleaning up and winterizing and am ready to start intense sewing again.
Of course, that is also when the fall bulbs arrive in the mail. You know, the ones I ordered way last spring.
I am, inevitably, disgruntled at the need to plant them.
BUT, here’s why one might order all those bulbs in the spring…
The daffs really love my little meadow down front. They are spreading so nicely.
The daffs below were planted last fall and have not had time to bulk up yet.
The front yard is now full of the Siberian blue scilla that are spreading. And we (my friend David Hannan) planted (not pictured here) bulbs in front (shown above) and on the far side and in the back last year. In a year or two they will be thicker. Also, deer don’t like daffodils. They adore tulips.
It’s time to go find the Fedco bulb catalog…
