Planting my fall bulbs...
I just finished planting 186 bulbs in two days...I planted 60 daffodils, 10 allium and 116 tulips..total of 186....I had taken out my hostas on the east side of the house in the middle of summer and planted daylilys because I was tired of them looking so bad in the middle of the season. I used to have over 150 hostas at the other house but I had a lot of shade and that they loved...It was beautiful I thought. In the tulips I planted blue ones, black ones, red ones, red and yellow ones and variety packages of all colors. I even had some of the fuller tulips that look like a peony, about 12 of them... In the daffodils I just planted the bright yellow ones..As hard as you try to get some organization in planting I think it is really hard when you are working around daylilys , a large butterfly bush, lupines and columbines. I put a group of bulbs in a small pail and just grab as I am putting them in the ground... Next spring will let me know if I achieved the look I was trying for.....Did you plant any bulbs this fall? Is so please let me know what kinds you planted... I love flower gardening and I am already thinking SPRING... anyone else have any new ideas that you tried in your flower beds?
These are from spring in my front flower bed...

I believe your tulip planting will be amazing come spring, well done! I've only planted a few new things this autumn, mainly because of lack of space. I'm still waiting for some yellow Muscari, and I'm done.
i just planted 125 last week, 50 tulips, 25 daffodils & 75 grape hyacynths! i put them in a new small bed at the front of my porch. i went back to the store this week & bought 125 more! those will go in the backyard and i am sharing some with my mother in law. i can't wait to see them in the spring!
