|Dreary, rainy few days before Christmas. Love my hibernating garden--its dreaming of daffodils and tulips and butterflies. Waiting for spring.|
|Added many more bulbs this year.|
Here are some shots from last year--wish I had smell-a-blog for the hyacinth.
In our growing zone (7b) crocus blooms first in the very early spring, then daffodils, then tulips, iris and hyacinths. Or when they feel like it.
|Tulips, simple and fancy.|
This autumn, I have invested in many new bulbs for groups called 'Cottage Garden,' 'English Garden,' and, what you would expect for a gardener in the Mojave Desert, bulbs for rock gardens. Many of these will be new to me--loving the anticipation and challenge.
|Irises, Van Gogh|
|Beautiful to look at, beautiful to smell! Hyacinth.|
