I have been waiting for this moment for 6 months ... in a few weeks, I will find out if I have any skill at all in "bulb planting." (or sooner, my blog posting has shown my first bulbs come up around March 25th).
Will I be seeing more of these this Spring?
Last fall, I planted bulbs for the first time, figuring after 3 years of gardening it was time to do more than just manage the troops. I put the bulbs all over the yard: front and back, by the fence and in a garden bed. I planted 3-4 different types of bulbs. I figured all of this variation has to UP my chance for at least 1 little guy to poke through, greet me with a pretty flower, and boost my ego.
I marked where I planted all the bulbs so I could have my own "Bulb Watch 2008." Whether they bloom or not, it'll be quite a show (i.e. pretty bulbs or me with a sad face).
