The beauty of spring takes my breath away. I am sitting here looking at the most gorgeous dogwood tree laden with white flowers while my tulips and violas are making a show on the terrace. I planted my bulbs then planted violas on top of them. The tulips nudged their way through the tiny purple blossoms and together they create a floral show. I enjoy looking out at my masterpiece as I drink my morning coffee.
The summer bulbs are planted, and I anticipate the lilies that should emerge and bloom in a few weeks. I tend to gravitate toward perennials that bloom every year. Why plant more than once? Well, that is if the neighborhood squirrels and chipmunks will leave the bulbs in the ground.
Try your hand at container gardening. Just a few bulbs in a container will bring blooms that will make you feel like an accomplished gardener!
Tell me: What are your favorite spring bulbs? Where do you find garden inspiration?
