I am a big fan of bulbs. You plant them in the fall, do nothing all winter long, and come early spring... Ta da! Color to soothe your soul. The grape hyacinth I planted next to my daffodils have started to peek up. I apologize in advance, I went a little picture crazy.
They are so tiny! These bulbs only reach a height of 6-8 inches, but they are so very small and delicate right now. =)
See the very tiny one above?
I adore grape hyacinth. They remind me somewhat of bluebonnets that I grew up with in Texas. Except they smell divine.
I swear this daffodil is looking down at the hyacinth, just saying hello.
