Sorry, I typed the ‘F’ word. Fall, or autumn if you are so inclined. I peered into my mailbox today and found the first Spring bulbs catalog of the season. ‘Spring’ bulbs are best planted in Autumn. And, if you are ordering you can get some good deals – this catalog has $25 certificate when you buy $50 worth of items.
At least now I still have a sense of what my spring flower bed looked like and where I could add some early pops of color. Tulips and crocus are missing from my bed of muscari (grape hycinth) and daffodils. I’ve already spread a few of those out and moved some iris and allium around to spread the wealth of color when they are in bloom. But, I don’t seem to have anything to show off in the early spring. Crocus and tulips should fill that void quite well.
