The bees love our sunflowers
Flowers starting to form sunflower seeds:
The fall planted bulbs are in bloom, and we know what grew well here (and what didn’t — wild tulips survive well here, but the big, beautiful Dutch tulips become a rodent buffet. I’ve tried mixing them with other bulbs to no avail. As much as I love the Dutch tulips, I’m not buying more this year.). It’s time to put in an order for this Autumn. I order bulbs from both ColorBlends and Old House Gardens. This year we’ll be planting daffodils:
And some more crocus bulbs to scatter throughout the lawn:
ColorBlends (one of my two favorite places to buy bulbs) was having a pre-season sale … and here are the bulbs I’m ordering for Autumn planting. When Old House Gardens has a sale, I’ll add some more heirloom bulbs too … but all of these should naturalize.
