One of the things I am looking forward to when I get home to Georgia, is planting bulbs in my yard. I love bulbs! I can plant once and enjoy flowers for several years with them. It is hard to chose which are my favorite, because I love so many of them. Crocus, tulips, hyacynth, dahlias, gladiolas…I could go on and on.
I just saw the video of Ruth and her family, the winners of the Curbside Chaos yard makeover. If I won something like that, it would hard to decide what to do. I know for sure, I would have them repair the fence in front of my house, plant rambling roses on the bank by the road, and some day lillies too. I love the way those look on a country roadside.
Did you know that for every share on Twitter with hashtag #CurbsideChaos, "Bulbs. Dig, Drop, Done." will donate $1.00 to Rebuilding Together – the nation’s leading nonprofit, working to preserve affordable homeownership and revitalize communities? I think that is a great idea! visit www.digdropdone.com to learn more.
While I do intend to plant lots of bulbs in my yard, I never knew that planting daffodils would help keep deer away. I also didn't know that dahlias would repel the squirrels. I learned that from watching Evelyn's video over at DigDropDone. Fabgrandpa and I have "planted" bulbs in bowls, and forced them to bloom in the winter inside the house. It is very easy to do, and provides color and a "burst of spring" on dark winter days.
One thing I loved about Curbside Chaos website is the planting guide. You choose your area of the country, the month you want your bulbs to bloom, and it shows you whic ones to plant!
What bulbs do you plant in your yard?
