Signs of Spring

While the weather here is still decidedly cold and gray, Puxatony Phil has predicted an earlier spring.  Some recent happenings in our yard are giving us hope!

Back in November, Seth and I planted approximately 150 bulbs (a mix of daffodils, tulips, ranunculus and freesia).  A quick note on mass bulb planting- I highly recommend using an auger to get the job done.
An auger, such as this one, attaches to the end of a drill and does all the work for you.  We tend to use our corded drill for such a job because of the power it supplies.  You should be able to grab an auger from your local home improvement store for around $20.

Enough technical talk...  Here are the baby bulbs pushing their way up.

And in other spring time news, our Park Seed order is on the way!  Pretty soon we'll have lots of little baby plant to share.
