Like you didn't already know this but,
I have this thing for flower bulbs.
I love them!
I love how easy they are to plant.
I love that they come back every year for me to enjoy.
I have several perennial gardens
and I know Spring has finally arrived once the
little green shoots of bulbs I planted last Fall
peek through the soil.
Just recently I was introduced to Dig Drop Done.
It's a really cute site that will help you
and encourage you as you get ready for planting bulbs and taking care of them.
Are you a novice and have no idea where to start?
Their "Ready To Learn" menu is the perfect place for you to start.
I've also been looking for some new bulbs to plant.
I have planted bulbs to bloom in the Spring

and selected my area to find out when I can plant them. Now I know!
It also goes along with their Bulb Calendar that you can find in the
"Ready to Plant" drop down menu.
When you click that, it brings up the month we're already in.
You can then look at the months ahead to see
what you'll need to prepare for next month!
For me the ability to plan ahead is huge!
I can then keep an eye on sales
and buy what I will need in the future now more economically!
Another thrifty tip,
most bulbs multiply and can be divided!
This means free plants!!
When you visit the website you will also be introduced to some
I can totally relate to Evelyn.
Like her, I now find myself with grown children
that have flown the coop, leaving
the nest empty.
For the first time in years I now have time that
I can devote to planting beautiful bulb gardens.
I could seriously spend all day
on their website!
I am so happy to have found it it just in
time for they planting and
