I really know that it is fall when bulbs appear at the nursery.
I love bulbs, they are such a wonder, plant them now and then when you have forgotten all about them, they burst forth in spring.
Our weather is so temperate not all bulbs do well here. Tulips will bloom but they need special care and personally I long ago gave up on that.
Now I stick bulbs that don't need a period of chilling such as daffodils narcissis, freesias, lilies and leucojum.
Although I loose a few bulbs each year, mainly because I forget where they are and accidentally dig them up, if the foliage is allowed to die back naturally they will multiply and come back. Some bulbs, like Paperwhites can even become a bit of a nuisance.
One of my favorites is the miniture daffodil, Tete-a-tete, planted as you can see in the photo below in my driveway median.
For some reason for the past couple of years I haven't been able to find them locally, too bad because they perform so well and you can tuck them into little spots. This year however I was able to order them online.
This is also the time to plant and divide iris...but that is for another day and quite too much work to think about while our temperatures continue to be so hot. Next month I think, although I will buy them now while there is still a good selection.
I use wooden paint stirring sticks to mark where I plant bulbs.
They make good and not too obtrusive garden markers.
Have a lovely day
