As you have probably guessed by now, I LOVE flowers!
I love to photograph them but I really enjoy going out in the garden and getting my hands dirty as well. But I must be honest, I normally buy flowers that are already grown and pop them in the ground. I have tried a few bulbs before but haven't had the BEST of luck with most.
Even though I do not have kids, I would say that I am Marcy, the Super Mom.
Marcy likes to garden but doesn't know much about bulbs.... I am pretty sure I just said the same thing about myself!
Bulb gardening can be absolutely beautiful! You can create a fabulous visual garden with different colors and heights of flowers that grow from bulbs. One of the best things, you plant those bulbs in the fall/winter and then you don't have to do any work come spring. Just enjoy the beauty that grows.
But you don't just have to use bulbs in your garden! You can create beautiful centerpieces with bulbs, give bulbs as a gift, and just brighten up your home in the dreary days of winter. I love having Amaryllis bulbs in my home around the holidays!
