Rain and snow is coming. Cool and cold is coming. That is not a problem. How it is delivered is the important part. Please be gentle.
Nothing is more disappointing than having thousands of daffodils in glorious bloom get bent, never to stand back up again.
Year two of the experiment to determine if 'Negrita' will be a multiplying, repeat blooming tulip is looking good. Bad scientist did not take notes. There are two fat healthy clumps I know to be 'Negrita' up and showing flower buds.
There are two more clumps of daffodils with some wimpy tulip foliage mixed in. I don't recall planting four patches of 'Negrita'. That could be smaller species tulip foliage which are not much better in these parts than regular tulips in the performance department. If something manages to bloom with the wimpy foliage I'll know better what is going on. Bad scientist!
The Trout Lilies are looking great. This relocation experiment was a success.
The low rays of a warm afternoon sun beam down the day before it arrives. Please don't squash the daffodils. The big show is just getting started.
Last year they got squashed. I was not pleased.
