I ordered two smart pots from Lee Valley and planted fifty Flair tulips in each (two layers of twenty-five). They have started to come up.
This spot isn't gorgeous, but those tiny green spots are bulbs that are coming up for the second year. Tulips, hyacinths, daffodils, and Kaiserkrone. I don't know if everything made it, but over the winter I always wonder if they will be back the next year.
The daffodils are planted everywhere. My husband likes them "naturalized" so they are in little bouquets all over the place:)
This is the west porch on the summer kitchen. I don't know what else he's going to do to this porch,, but he added the short side's railing recently. He said he isn't going to put a hand rail on the steps leading up to the short side facing the camera.
These are grape hyacinths. They are a brilliant purple but the bright light washed the color out. These grow wild around here. I wish I'd known it before I bought a bunch when we first moved here.
The green patches that are short are more bouquets of daffodils.
Yea, spring is coming!
