Fall is one of my favorite times in the garden, the roses have a new flush of bloom and in our temperate climate it is also an excellent time to plant many things including perennials, winter annuals, winter vegetables, and bulbs!
Here is a sample of the bulb selections I have made for this year. These bulbs do not need winter chilling so they do very well for us and come back year after year, popping up in the most surprising manner; I never can seem to exactly remember where I planted them.
I can hardly wait to walk out into the garden this spring and see the lilies blooming, but daffodils, iris ( who could resist an iris called Cherubs Smile) and the dainty leucojum are wonderful too. And what about the sweetness of freesias.
I have a feeling that tomorrow is going to be a very busy day!
Are you planning any spring surprises in your garden?
