Spring bulbs

You are suppose to plant your bulbs by December.  At least that is what the package says.  I always buy too many bulbs while I am at the store looking around.  Whether it is because they are on clearance or my heart starts to dance when all the thoughts of snow melting and sun shining and winter is just about over glee takes me on, I just pick up too many packages.  So with the nice weather I put on a sweater and gloves and headed for the mailbox garden this afternoon.  I cut down my grass and removed a few weeds that have already started to green up.  I dug a few holes and dropped in my Glory-of-the-snow and species tulips “Little Princess” bulbs and patted them in.  No need to water.  The ground is pretty saturated right now. 

 Whether they are able to root this year and blossom is not known, but at least I didn’t end up composting them.
