When we remodeled the house, I had to dig up my flower gardens…including all my tulips. I cleaned the bubs and set them aside.
Now, I am planting them! Planting tulips is one of my favorite things….It’s an ending to fall and a hope for spring.
When I did childcare, one of my favorite things to do was to take photos of the kids planting tulips in the fall. Then in the spring I would take a picture of the kids cutting tulips for their moms. The fun part is that tulips typically bloom here in Iowa right around Mother’s Day. It was the perfect gift along with the pictures.
My sister and her husband are known to be “tulip fairies”. They sneak into their kids’ yards and plant tulips….then they bloom in the spring.
Many of my tulip bulbs were VERY small but I planted them anyway…..we’ll see what spring brings. Hopefully LOTS of buds!
