Thinking About Spring!!

If you want pretty Tulips in the Spring,
you have to prepare now!!
The hubs loves Spring Bulbs, Tulips mostly and he loves red and yellow.
I voted for purple and white,
you will soon see how that vote ended,
and trust me, you will be very surprised.
 
Once the "prep" work is done, I didn't get a before picture,
but this garden was a mess of weeds.
 
He uses  a power tool and those bulbs go in pretty quickly.
 
A total of 300 bulbs were planted, all around the front yard,
 
red and yellow!!
 
It's serious work kids and
he loves seeing those little surprises popping up in Spring...
 
and don't you think it's about time he won at something??
 
I do!!

  6. I tried to plant a few tulips two springs ago. The squirrels dug them up. Since then I was told to put 'chicken wire' over the bulbs to prevent the digging. Next spring we're going to do some serious landscaping...maybe next fall!!

  11. I love flowers from bulbs. My husband also likes to do the fall prep work. Unfortunately, for the past few years, the squirrels have snatched many bulbs, and the tulips were a bit sparse.

  15. Hmmmm... I think you are playing with the Hubs. Letting him 'win' and all. I am sensing that he will be planting purple and white azaleas or such in the not so distant future...

  18. I guess we should be thinking of spring if we are going to plant some bulbs this year. We planted our first ones last year and they were so beautiful. I will look forward to the pictures you will take of these freshly planted bulbs.
    I loved the pictures of your hubby hard at work planting.
    Blessings!

  30. I haven't even successfully rallied the troops to clear the weeds - forget bulbs.

  32. Wow that's a lot of red/yellow but they will be so beautiful come spring. - We planted bulbs too (lots of Daffodils and several colors of Tulips) I believe I have one with a purplish shade to it. When they bloom I'll share. - Can't wait to see your hubby's hard work paying off.
