This afternoon I went out to the garden to plant bulbs in the future fairy garden. I planted white and pink tulips and tiny grape hyacinth bulbs at the base of the tree, and about 30 more grape hyacinth in the center of the tree.
Tomorrow, I think I’ll go hunt down some moss and plant a lush path and add small stepping stones in front of the tree and try to find something to make a fairy door with. Have you ever made one? Do you have any suggestions?
After planting some bulbs in the fairy garden, Black Fatty and I pulled out a bunch of recycled containers and started filling them with dirt and bulbs.
I want to be able to plant the remaining bulbs in random pockets throughout the backyard. But since I still have a quite a ways to go before the backyard is fully cleared, I decided to go ahead and plant as many bulbs as I could in plastic pots and seed trays for now. I’ve seem bulbs sold in flats like this in the spring at Costco before, so I think it should work.
After today’s planting, I am now down to 312 bulbs. Mostly daffodils and allium bulbs. Let’s hope I can get the rest of them planted tomorrow, and be done with this crazy project.
Note to self – Never purchase 2,000 + bulbs again just because you find them on sale. Well, not unless you have a hottie of a gardener who will plant them for you while you sit on the deck and watch.
