Adventures in Gardening

So this past spring/summer, I noticed that we had bulb-type flowers growing in random locations around our place.  Like a patch of daffodils out by a tree (that I'm pretty sure got mowed down every year), some unidentifiable bulbs, and some purple somethings that were in the back yard where no one could see them.  Well I get the bright idea that they should be moved to the front of the house in this little rocked in place out front.  J, being the great husband that he is, willingly helps  :-), although to be honest I think he thought it was a fruitless idea.  Especially after the plants were moved, they started to get all brownish.  But!!! What should my wondering eyes should see when I take little Jose out to do his business?  The sprouts of some of these plants!  Boom!  Now I don't know if all the plants made it, but seeing 4-6 different little sprouts made me smile. 

I don't know if you can see, but the sprouts are about every eight inches or so!

Here's a close-up of one

  1. Bulbs are great! They are almost indestructible and seeing them start poking up through the ground is always so hopeful!
