Every winter, just about the time the cold, snow and grey make me want to jump out the window, I start seeing shoots of green and pops of blues, yellows and reds around the neighborhood. I want to have one of those houses with a ton of early spring flowers to help people remember that winter won’t last forever.
So I bought a lot of bulbs — tulips and daffodils. Breck’s got me with its big “Buy $100 and get $50 off” sale.
I planted a fall vegetable crop to make summer last a little longer and bought these spring bulbs to make spring start a little sooner. Anything to make winter feel as short as possible.
Red tulips and yellow daffodils are on the way. I’ve never grown daffodils and my tulips have been semi-successful at best. Can’t wait till they arrive!
