Most of my bulbs are daffodils. I love that bright yellow against the backdrop of winter. And since there are deer roaming here, this is one of the bulbs that they generally leave alone.
This is a fragrant yellow Muscari, Muscari macro 'Golden Fragrance.' While I strayed from my daffodils on this planting, I did choose a unusual yellow muscari to keep with the color theme.
Welcoming seasonal surprises is part of the fun of gardening for me. (Sometimes it's part of the frustration as well!) I don't remember what I planted here. Though I wrote down all the bulbs I planted in this whole bed last year, I don't remember what went in this specific spot.
I do know that these are passalong irises from one of my many garden blogging friends.
These are my new favorite daffodils -- they are teeny-tiny and the blooms are just precious. They are Daffodil Jonquilla 'Simplex.' I wrote about them last spring in this post.
So while I am bundled up inside reading seed catalogs and planning the vegetable garden, my bulbs are outside, getting ready to shower the spring garden with a little sunshine.
