These boxes arrived the other day. Inside there were daffodils and tulips. They will make such a lovely show once the snow melts and the sun warms the earth.
There is something amazing about these misshapen bulbs. They will sleep through the coldest winter tucked beneath the ground. Then when spring arrives they awaken to dance.
Every autumn I plant a new variety of daffodils. This year High Society, Fidelity, and Sound have been added to the collection. John Scheepers has a wonderful selection. Their packaging is always well marked.
Tulips here in Ohio need to be replaced almost every year. There are a few that will survive a couple of seasons but generally I plant new ones each fall. The Darwin are the best for being perennial. Even so unless one digs them up after blooming they tend to get small and may only return another spring.
Daffodils on the other hand given some bonemeal in the fall will remain faithful friends for years to come.
Well I had better get busy planting these beauties before the snow flies. Have a great week and thanks for stopping by!
