Time to plant those bulbs

The next few weeks is the time to plant those bulbs so that in early spring you see those tulips and crocus popping up. I have not done that here as yet so I guess this weekend I have to till the area where I want them and get those bulbs in and ready for the spring.

I may also plant some daylillies and some iris too. That way this area is blooming right through the summer.

Too early for that here. We plant them in late fall or early winter. I think I will get a bunch of very low growers & mix them in amongst the roses. I really have to remember to lift the daffs when they are done blooming this winter.
It is almost time for me to lift my tuberoses & divide them.

Every year my MIL divides up her daffodils, and sends a bushel basket to me. So I guess I have to get busy soon....

I'm no good at gardening, and I need things that are hardy, and pretty much fool-proof. Good idea with the day lilies and iris.

No bulb planting here. :grin We are getting all our veggies in. Our espaliered pears are starting to flower, as is our new dwarf lemon. The dwarf peach has baby fruits on it; I hope they mature. And the broad beans are still flowereing, haven't set any pods yet. They are late, and I am itching to eat some nice fresh beans.
