(another mystery brought to you today by a baffled gardener) Last year, after reading about others daffodils and tulips on Garden Blogs, I decided it was time to give them a second chance. I have never had luck with bulbs in my Georgia Garden but was tempted to give them another go. This happens when you visit garden blogs. And look, they returned in the planter on the east side of the house! The Daffy's are growing much faster then the Tulips and Phlox which were all planted at the same time.
I also planted Tulip Bulbs in the Semi-Formal Flower Garden last year. I talked about creating this New Planter in front of the picket fence which hides the Ugly Gas Tank. In the above picture, you see those beautiful Tulips keeping African Daisy company.
Winter has come and gone and here is the Planter today. Where are the Tulips?
I see this little bit of foliage.
And I see this little bit of foliage but nothing more! Did they rot in the soggy conditions of the rainy winter? Were they bad specimens that don't return? Or as I suspect, did our resident Vole get to them? Look at the Black-eyed Susan coming up!
Other Bulb plants such as these Dwarf Lily seem to be okay. Blueberry Candy, Pandora's Box and Daring Deception Daylily are fine as well. All these lilies are near the Tulip Planter.
So WHERE ARE MY BULBS? In the Garden...
