Spring Bulbs

I love spring bulbs. If only the flowers lasted all summer! The best I can do is to try to plant a variety of bulbs for early-, mid- and late- season.

What’s flowering now?

The early daffodils… these are one of my favorites, but I don’t know the variety – they came with the house. I love the pale yellowish-orange center cups contrasted against the bright yellow petals:

The “very early” tulips are pretty much gone, and we’re on to the “early” tulips, along with the heavenly-scented hyacinths:

The Siberian blue squill is doing great this year – it has done much better than the chionodoxa (Glory of the Snow) I planted the same year. Considering that they bloom at the same time, I’ll skip planting any more of the chionodoxa.

    Lovely! It doesn’t usually get cold enough here for most bulbs to flower right.

    Beautiful! I’m starting to think we see so many of the ‘classic’ bulbs everywhere because they do so well.

    You, as always, are lightyears ahead of us.
