Bulbs all planted

Today my mom would have been 73. A good day to plant some bulbs, and I think I will dedicate them to her! I always wonder what kind of garden she would have had if she had been able to bend and get around more easily. Would she have started with a plan, then fill it in? Or have a plan, then fudge like me.

So much to do in the fall, its a shame there seems only the weekends to accomplish it all. Today 18 daffodils went in the front yard, and a total of 72 in the back yard. I really need to come up with a good plan for planting in the front…. its becoming hap-hazard as I find places to stick cheap plants. Not good… that only leads to more work moving them around.

The pink tulips will go at the front of the house, along with the gladiator allium. I hope they will get enough sun to bloom well. Otherwise will need to find another home for them.

  1. 72 daffodils in the backyard??
    As of March 15, I count 2 that have broken ground.
    I have to wonder just how many will appear in the raised beds. I planted them to the outside of the bed which has little insulation against the winter cold. I’m thinking I had at least 15 in each side?
    Where the heck did I plant the other 42 bulbs?

    On the bright side, it looks like all 18 planted out front are up, as well as 12 tulips, and 2 of the 3 alliums are above ground.
