I planted a lot of bulbs last fall – and at the end of the planting season, I was just throwing bulbs anywhere I had space. The great thing about bulbs is that you can plant them and forget all about them. No pressure.
Tonight I went out onto the front porch to check out the daisies that the husband put back outside (we didn’t want them to freeze to death over the weekend, so we brought the planters inside) and I discovered that my tulips were actually growing!
On the side of the house, I have hyacinth. Several were not planted deep enough, and are therefore on their sides. (I’ll dig up the bulbs at some point, and bury them a little deeper.) I’m not sure if this pink one will fully bloom, though. I’m afraid the freeze over the weekend may have hurt it.
The best part of the flowers? I don’t have to worry about them this fall. They *should* come back next year!
Plant ’em, and forget ’em. Best thing ever.
