The Saving Grace of a Northern Garden
Even so, there is one saving grace of living in the North- spring bulbs! I love them! I can't get enough of them! And I don't really have to do anything to them but plant them. The winters are so long and unpredictable. After months of cabin fever, seeing the spring flowers braving the receding snow to show their beautiful little selves is just wonderful.
I have over the years planted literally thousands of spring bulbs, but my favorites are my tulips. Although I do have many of the common red and yellow tulips, I like to find unusual tulips. I have quite a collection and always have my eye out for new varieties to try out. And there is always room for more spring bulbs!
