How many bulbs will show up out there.
Every fall for the last several years I have been handed sacks of Bulbarella's overflow from her dividing operations. I find places to plant them. She is just pretending to give them to me. I'm really just a pawn being used in her grand scheme to cover her mountain from top to bottom with bulbs. It's working.
I had forgotten about planting these crocus. It was a surprise when I spotted them. I think she actually bought a sack of bulbs to give me now that I think about it. Or was that an overflow purchase too?
The snowdrops have been here a few years now. It wouldn't hurt to help them multiply.
Today I found more crocus I had forgotten about. I remember planting all the baby liatris corms I found while weeding at a client's and putting them in this bed. Why do I forget about the bulbs?
I have no idea about a lot of what will show up out there. Many of the annual and perennial wildflowers set seed. They multiply and move about on their own. I keep adding more seeds and more perennials that can do the same. I edit out the unwanted and tend to leave the good things where they show up.
What will the garden be like this year? In this garden there will always be lots of surprises.
