Note to self: bulbs planted in the garden
Every year, Downtown Home and Garden prices their remaining spring flowering bulbs half off during mid November. This year, I bought hyacinths for forcing and then some unique bulbs for planting in the garden. I'm documenting it here because I will forget what it was and where I planted it come spring. Along the steps, I planted oxalis adenophyla (Shamrocks) and ornithalgum nutans (Drooping star of Bethlehem) by the stairs and muscari golden fragrance hyacinthoides otisponica pink (can't find a picture of this pink bluebell) and muscari saffier down by the Pink Promise hybrid tea rose bush my daughter planted. I'll try to rmember to post later about how these all turn out! I hope the rose bush makes it - I've never had much luck with roses.
