It poured for the past two days and now I only have today left of my vacation. Time to get cracking and get my bulbs planted. Before I got started, I took a quick look around the areas where I had planted bulbs and spread the hot peppers. The rain didn’t seem to make any difference. There is no evidence of squirrel depredations.
I started in the Purple Garden with the Queen of the Night tulips and then the Purple Dreams collection. I moved to the very back of my yard and added Red Riding Hood tulips in the same area as I had planted them last year.
I need a hard frost to kill off all the annuals in the Butterfly/Hummingbird Garden. That is where I have decided to plant the Darwin Tulips. In the meantime, I planted Tahiti daffs:
I have another orphan bulb: Geranium daffodils
Since they are heirlooms (introduced 1930), I decided to put them in the Accidental Herb Garden with the Burgundy Lace tulips.
Finally, I headed over to the Entry Garden to widen it in to create homes for all the bulbs I had ordered for it. I knocked off early today. I’m tired and achy. I hope I’m not getting sick.
Totals for today:
6 Queen of the Night tulips
10 Shirley tulips (Purple Dreams collection)
10 Zurel tulips (Purple Dreams collection)
10 Attila tulips (Purple Dreams collection)
6 Red Riding Hood tulips
5 Tahiti daffodils
