Planting Hope, Hamilton, Montana
Hot tip for any plant-loving procrastinators - er, rather, busy people putting the last minute to effective use: Lowe’s still has spring bulbs for sale.
Even better: they’re ON sale at fifty percent off.
I bought six bags - after putting back three bags, thanks to a wee self-chat about realistic expectations.
I’m a little excited.
Come Saturday - after coffee, of course- , you'll find me bundled up and tenderly placing papery-swathed bulbs of promise: grape hyacinths, alliums, daffodils, fragrant hyacinths, and tulips.
These will stand out nicely amidst the foliage of the later-blooming lilies and fritillaria I tucked in last weekend.
Only 124 days until spring!
