Last fall I planted a bunch of spring bulbs along the walkway that leads from our driveway to the front door. The original plan was for 100 or so bulbs to be planted among the cherry laurels and holly bushes growing in the garden beds.

As luck would have it, the company we were going to order the bulbs from was having a buy one-get-one sale on several varieties and colors. And believe it or not, the varieties we wanted were on sale!

Oh darn.

And then, I was in the local hardware store and I just happened to see these purple tulips on sale. Had to get them…two packages.

It turns out I planted over 220 spring bulbs to add a bit of color figuring that would make a pretty good statement.

The plantings included grape hyacinths, daffodils and multiple types and colors of tulips.

This grouping nearest the driveway started to open this past weekend.

    That’s a lot of bulbs but I see how worth it it was.

    Hey David! You’re back. How great is that. I don’t know how I missed your February posts. I too am not too regular. 🙂

      Thanks John. Waiting in the wings to be planted are 36 perennial geraniums in pink blue and white.

    I like their colors.
    But I am wondering why some are not as tall as the one in left part of the photo? Maybe they are different types.
