Last summer we had the flower beds redone. As the guys were digging out the existing plants, I asked that they please save my jonquil bulbs. When I got home that afternoon there was 5 wal mart plastic bags filled with bulbs on the porch. I couldn't believe that my small bed had that many bulbs. They really needed to be dug up and transplanted but I never got around to it. So as fall approached I knew I needed to get the bulbs in the ground. Finally I tackled the project. I bought a bulb planting little shovel and started digging. When I planted all I wanted I had only used a small portion of one sack......then I wondered....will they live.....will they come up next year?
Yesterday morning I happened to look at the bed and wow, look what I saw!
I went outside to inspect the beauties and found one big bunch that got overlooked.
The bed is filled with shoots popping out of the ground.
I am so happy to see that they survived. Now I wonder if the rest of the bulbs still in the sacks will live until next fall? What do you think? If they do I am going to plant bulbs everywhere.
All this means that snowfall is approaching. When they bloom we get snow every year!!! Oh My!
