Daffy Bulbs

BY SKEETER
 Hyacinth are blooming in my GEORGIA GARDENS! I am so happy as they have the sweet smell of Spring in the air.
I have colors of Blue, Pink and White.
 I love that bright blue color and wish I had more then I do. I don't seem to have much luck with bulbs in my gardens other then Daffy's. However, these few Hyacinths seem to be doing well and have returned for 2 years. I think it may be time to add some more Hyacinths.  
 Daffodils and Narcissus are blooming even though I only planted them about a month ago! Yep, I was late getting them into the ground but they did not seem to care as they look happy to me.
 I went outside the box with my love of plain yellow and got different types.
 But I still love the plain yellow the best as they remind me of my childhood.
 Miss Vain Crocus is also happy even though only planted about a month ago.
 They are small blooms but pack a big punch in an otherwise gloomy garden this time of year.
I have been purchasing daffy bulbs the past couple of years and by fall, I am too burned out from the humidity in the air to get them into the ground. I put them into the shed where they are almost forgotten then in December or January, I find myself getting them into the ground. This year I added the Crocus and also Muscari to the fold. I will try to do better this Fall with getting DAFFY BULBS, In the Garden...

  1. That is pretty fast for them to come up and bloom. Good job! Daffodils are my favorite bulbs for their versatility. Wonderful colors!

    1. Tina is such a sweetheart and loves to share a bit of her garden. I have a few treats she has passed along to me as well. My favorite treat would have to be the iris. I think of her every time they bloom.....

  3. My daffies are very slow to bloom. This on again/off again weather seems to be bothering them.

  8. I had no idea daffodils would bloom with just a month in the ground! That actually seems quite smart! All your bulbs are looking good - and very spring-ish!
