Last autumn was the first time I’ve planted fall bulbs. In fact, it’s the only thing I got done in the yard after my appendix bit the dust in October. After the dreary(but not particularly cold) winter, I was thrilled to have some early spring bloomers coming up! The tulip mixture was supposed to be white(not yellow) and purple (not magenta), thus fitting into the purple/blue/white color scheme that I have very carefully adhered to in the front yard. I’m willing to give them a pass though, considering they’re the ONLY thing besides daffodils blooming in the front this time of year.
The daffodils are very nice. And have an interesting quality that I’m sure I’ve seen before on other daffodils, but wasn’t important until it existed on MINE. That is, instead of one medium/large flower per stem, there are 3-4 small flowers. It makes getting a lot of blooms into a container with a small opening such as empty liquor bottles much easier.
