The Daffodils, Hyacinth and Tulips are in bloom. My Spring potting table looks great and smells wonderful!
I went back to the garden center on Sunday and almost everything was gone as far as Spring bulbs “in the green”. I was disappointed that I did not find any Muscari (Grape Hyacinth) this year.
This weekend I also planted the Freesia bulbs and scattered some of the Love in a Mist seeds into the pots with the white Calla Lily and the Bleeding Heart. I figure the Calla and the Bleeding Heart will die back by Summer, and maybe I’ll get some Love in a Mist flowers. Not sure if they will grow in a pot, but thought I would give it a try. Last year I scattered the seeds in front of the potted roses along with some wildflower seeds and they looked so pretty. Not sure what will happen this year since I think most of what I had planted in the ground (bulbs, wildflowers) got destroyed by the construction. This year I’m not planting anything in the ground.
I am happy I was able to save some Daffodil bulbs and two Hyacinth. I saw them sprouting up the weekend I pruned the roses, so I dug them up and put them in pots. Looks like the Hyacinth are blue and pink. The Daffodils I dug up aren’t quite ready to bloom yet, so it will be nice to have a second round of them once the ones I purchased from the garden center start to fade. I really wish the Spring flowers could last longer, but I guess the fact that they are so short lived makes me appreciate them that much more.
