So today I spent some time picking out and planting my Spring and Summer color.
I bought two large planters and several types of bulbs. The pictures of the flowers are from the packaging:
Alliums (Purple Sensation)- Sticking with the cool theme, these little puffballs are pretty neat. They remind me of purple dandilion puffs.
Gladiolus (Blue Lagoon) - I love Gladiolus' tall stalks. I like them so much, I got two types...
Gladiolus (Traderhorn)- Beautiful purple and white verigation in these.
Crocus (Mix)- The crocus blooms as soon as the first warm days come signalling Spring isn't far to follow.
I also planted some mixed tulips. The pacakge didn't have a picture, but we all know what Tulips look like, right? To add some greenery, I transplanted some existing Hostas I already had in pots.
So here is the finished product! I know... there isn't much to see yet. You'll have to come back in a few weeks to see how they turned out.
