Spring Break in January?

The temperatures this week have been wonderful and now that the windows and doors have been prepped for the next cold stretch-which starts tomorrow I believe-it was time to get out of the house and play and this weekend I did just that.

I'd been thinking that I really need to get those bulbs that I dug up last summer back into the ground before they ruin and there was this little irritating area next to the wall of the parking lot that I thought I might turn into a partial shade bed.  Of course this all began simply by wanting to get some of the daffodils back into the ground.  Of course once that was done I got to pondering what else could be planted-irises near the wall where the digging is shallow, some lavender plants that I have no idea what they are but there are only a few-surely I could poke them in there some where...etc.

The next thing you know, I had 2 boxes of bulbs replanted around the back yard and a new bricked off bed near the gate.  One thing leads to another.  Here's the new little bed.

I did a little mock-up so that I'd know what I planted where.

Hopefully, it will look something like this as it blooms-not all at the same time of course.

Can't wait to see stuff blooming there!


  1. It will be fun to compare what really comes up to what you've drawn up! I had to laugh—your drawing looks like what I do with my flower beds. I always have to draw out how I think things will look together for color, height, bloom time, etc. Nice when you can get a warm spell in the middle of winter, even if it's just for a short time, isn't it?
