Spring Has Sprung!

A batch of my tulips has come up!

Last fall I put in two clusters of tulip bulbs after the ground was partially frozen. I was too busy until then. So I was out there in the cold with a bulb bit on my husband's drill, drilling holes in the ground and dropping in bulbs. That worked pretty well, actually, but it was work. I hoped they'd actually come up and not get eaten over the winter. So far, so good! We'll see if the deer find the green sprouts to be a nice salad, though.

I have two perennials coming up, too.

One was given to me by a neighbor; I think it's geranium/cranesbill. The other was given to me by my sister-in-law; it's butterfly bush or something like that. Both plants were divided from their gardens.

  1. That's going to be so nice to get some spring flowers! They're always like bits of sunshine when it's still so dreary out.

    I didn't plant any last year but I plan to this fall.
