daffodils & phlox

Sunday, October 17, 2010

I think everyone likes daffodils. It is one of my favorite flowers too. I had ordered three sets of the pretty yellow jonquils & also some phlox that I had never had in my garden. So when they came I realized I had some work ahead of me. I got out my trusty spade & dug some beds for the bulbs. I don't have a big space so this was a bit of a dilemma. I had ordered more bulbs than I had space for. You know, when you get those catalogs you see all the beautiful flowers & you become obsesses. I ordered giant daffodils, mediums daffodils & petite daffodils all looked so lovely in the  VAN BOURGONDIEN  catalog so I went overboard. I had to have those lovelies. I also had 3 roots of phlox to find room for. I have two gardens on my small piece of property. One is a perennial garden & in one I plant my annuals. Actually I have three garden cause another small area that has both annuals & perennials. I got out my bone meal & got those bulb planted. I found room for the phlox & when I was finished I was tired & my back & joints were aching but all was right with the world. Now I can't wait till spring when the daffodils bloom.

We just have a patch of an apartment garden - altho we do have roses - But hubby finds great deals in cut flowers on Sunday evenings at the supermarket in the upscale neighborhood where I have a tutoring gig - Just got some $3 tulips!

I am right with you! However, the great thing about daffodils, is that once finished blooming, and the stems are going "brown"; you can cut the stems off and plant right on top of them with annuals!

About Me:

I've always liked to do things with my hands. I knit, sew, embroider, draw, craft, & a lot of other things. I'm slowing down a bit now but still keep active an attend a weekly craft-sewing-knitting club & am always looking for ideas. My biggest regret is that young people don't seem to be interested in learning to knit, sew, etc. I hope it all doesen't become a lost art. I did a sewing session making yo-yo circles with a group of teen girls & they loved it...picking out thier fabrics etc. There is great satisfaction in creativity.
