Bulbs for Patti

I’m so sorry it has been so long since my last post, I’ve had a lot going on.

Spring has sprung and is slowly turning into summer. I tried some new bulbs this year, tulips, that I’ve always had trouble growing. I had about a 2/3rds success rate, and the highlights are below.

These are red, white and blue hyacinth flowers. I’ve been growing these bulbs for years, and they are my favorite since they have such an intoxicating aroma. Very sad they are only around for four weeks a year in late winter.

I found these two seasons ago at a big-box, and have been pleasantly surprised by their subtle beauty

This is a fresia flower, another bulb I’ve grown for years. They have a lovely, soft lemon scent

And the tulips, this magenta one was cool, but all of them were unexpected, as I planted them so long ago in October.

This one was red on the inside, and looked quite devilish

These ones started out looking like dinosaurs, or even the plant from Little Shop of Horrors
