The collection of images to the right are my OUT yellows. These are a collection of miniature daffodils. As I look around this spring I have hopes of adding more spring flowering bulbs to my collections in the fall. Does anyone else get to the fall and you are ready to store the garden shovel? NOTE TO SELF - ADD MORE SPRING BULBS IN LATE OCTOBER!
Yesterday was a wonderful day to be outside despite the wind. Leaf blowing duty was super easy! I would just give all the leaves that covered my perennials for the winter a little nudge with the blower and off they went! I can't help but remember the snow we got a few years back the second week of April as I take the covers off of the beds. I do pray this year will continue to be rich with warmth.
NOTES TO SELF : ADD MORE COLOR in the FALL! Spring bulbs can go in the ground as late as January in my zone 5b. IF the ground is not frozen these spring show stoppers can be added to the soil. I have taken a few shots of random garden areas and edited them in photoshop to show where to add the bulbs. This is a good time to do this planning because come late summer these area's are filled with color from the summer perennials.
I had to end this mornings post with the pussy willow tree.... wonderful display this time of year. I hope everyone is able to get out and enjoy this day in the garden.
