Yard: Evolution of the Bulbs

One of the best gardening decisions I made was to plant bulbs last fall. There's a high level of pay off, since just a few hours of digging results in big, bright blooms to cheer up early spring. Bulbs are great for shady gardens like mine because they show up before tree leaves fill in. It's also nice that crocuses and daffodils will come back and spread year after year. I'm totally going to plant more bulbs this fall, including a mini field of grape hyacinths.

  1. Pretty, pretty, pretty. Planting bulbs really is highly rewarding. Seeing crocuses peeking out of the ground when it's still freezing cold is like getting a promise of spring.

  2. WOW!!!This is really giving a Greeny Green looks to your garden.The use of Patio Tiles in garden can make it more attractive looks.
