I'm finally thinking about planting spring bulbs and yes, seeing that it is almost the end of November, it is absolutely true that I should win a prize for procrastination.
So what bulbs am I planting, you might ask? Mostly, they are the deep discount, ninety-nine cents a box type bulbs. I dug deep down into those clearance bins to find daffodils and narcissus bulbs of all sorts, a few boxes of tulips and several boxes of purple and yellow crocus.
And a few weeks back, I also splurged and bought a few fancy bulbs, including some red and yellow parrot tulips for the front of the house. Last year the voles got most of the tulips in the front garden and so fingers crossed these new parrots will actually get to greet the spring.
I have no doubt that I will pay for my procrastination with frozen fingertips!
In keeping with my spring bulb theme, the irises shown in this post are this weeks grocery store bouquet. They have been doing a wonderful job of brightening the front hall for days.
I hope you have a great weekend!
