If there is one think I love in the springtime, it's flowers! As soon as I see the first buds on my daffodils coming up, I know the snow will be ending soon!
The thing that I love most about spring bulbs is that I can plant them now while the weather is nice and forget about them. Then as soon as the snow starts to thaw, those gorgeous blooms start popping up. And the best part - they come up year after year with no effort additional effort from me!
I recently visited the Bulbs: Dig, Drop, Done to learn more about bulb planting. There site was overflowing information and inspiration. Everything from bulb basics to a great monthly bulb calendar and tons of ideas in the beautiful gallery of inspiration
While I was there, I took a few minutes getting to know 'The Ladies', aka, the site hostesses. I found a little of myself in each of Marcy, Juliana and Evelyn, but I most related to busy mom Marcy! Anything I can do to save time and still "add a little beauty to my life" is definitely on my to-do list!
