|I'm a sucker for Camassia|
Fears of jinxing and such...
This weekend, it felt as if Mother Nature was on my side.
(At long last! :)
Minutes after I'd given a loving pat to the soil, covering the brand new bulbs that I needed like a hole in my head ...
Grey clouds stretched across our blue skies and a quiet rain finished up this last project of the season.
It's been a dry autumn. I'd regretted turning off the outside faucets.
How very kind of Mother Nature to water my bulbs.
This time of year, most every gardener I know is a card-carrying member of the I Dread Winter Club.
I'm a bit of a rebel in that respect.
I'll confess, I'm looking forward to some lazy days. Curling up with a good book and enjoying a whole lotta quiet time.
Flatly refused to plant bulbs because of that.
But, there's always somebody stirring up trouble.
Brightly colored catalogs stacked about her kitchen.
All I gotta do is look at a picture and bam! I'm slapping down a credit card for one gotta have it, or another. No matter how crowded my gardens, seems there's always room for new bulbs.
Tip: Mountain critters hate Alliums (onion) bulbs but they dearly love a good Tulip. I plant rings of Allium bulbs around the Tulips and it works like a charm. They can't find 'em! I'm pretty sure I heard those rodents groaning when they saw what I was up to.
Aftermath of Halloween:
My oh, so, creative darling daughter was Tippi Hedron, this year.
You remember her, don't you? Star of the Alfred Hitchcock thriller movie that L calls The [Angry] Birds!
