Spring Bulbs Already!

Had a break in the rain so I was taking me a walk to see what I could see....
First flower bed out by the road........Daffodils! there are some at the other end of the bed too. Don't pay any attention to the leaves and acorns, we are a long way from all of them falling, they are just getting started good.
Red Brick Castle Wall flower bed.........don't think these are Daffodils (spring bulbs just the same)......I know where I planted bulbs, just don't quite remember what bulbs are planted where.....I know I cannot be the only gardener who does this.
The large full sun flower bed, soon to be Butterfly Garden.....Daffodil. I planted over 70 bulbs so maybe I will have a long flowering season with them.
I know I have some February Bloomers, I don't think that's what all of these are. It's going to be interesting around here. Do you have any spring bulbs popping up? Or is it just weird in Florida?

My alliums, dutch iris & muscari have emerged. I noticed you have a sandy soil. Ours is heavy clay which I have to amend each year to keep in check.

Darla said...

Perennialgardener, some of it's sandy and some of it is so rich you can smell it when it's turned. Almost all of the photos appear sandy though. Seems to work pretty good though.

I have some bulbs to plant. It's so cool to see them coming up out of the ground like in your photos. And no, you're not the only one who forgets what got planted where. I never use those little signs. :-D

That is what I will need to do get spring bulbs in soon after we get moved. Thanks for reminding me.

Last year, some of our rhododendron blossoms BLOOMED in late fall instead of spring... Crazy things!!!!! AND--I've seen daffodils pop up early... So far this year, nothing has popped up yet. Of course, we had a cold November.
Hugs,
Betsy

I wish we had spring bulbs in February! We have snow on the ground in Missouri. Can't wait to see them in bloom.

Great scenery images.

Leedra said...

I would think you being in Fla has something to do with it. It has been too cold here for them to pop up, although yesterday it was warm.

Dani said...

I didn't even know you could do bulbs in Florida!!

Jessica said...

Hi Darla~ I'm so glad you came by. Your gardens are amazing. Please come by again soon!

Hugs~ J

No spring bulbs here, too much snow on the ground.

You aren't the only one who forgets what she planted where;) No matter, we will have a lovely surprise when they bloom

I'm looking at a 3 foot snowdrift right now! Thank goodness I have your blog to see some flowers and greenery!

Susie said...

It's interesting how those bulbs just start coming up this time of the year. I think they definitely get confused.

Darla: Wait/Wait /Wait, we haven't even gotten to Winter and you have sprouts. Please don't call it Spring, I'm already getting sick of these gray skies.
