By this time, I thought my bulbs for spring would be in the ground. We had cold weather arrive so early this year that gardening has not been a priority. We’ve even had snow, you might remember!
Yesterday was very nice so I got all my ducks in a row and began digging.
Tulips should be planted about 6” deep. After I dug, I worked in some peat moss and some bone meal as a fertilizer.
I planted daffodils, tulips, grape hyacinths and moved some crocus to another location.
Several years ago when my oldest daughter got married we placed purple (her wedding color) tulip bulbs in a little box and wrapped a purple ribbon around the box to give to each guests as a thank you for coming to the wedding. Mine didn’t live when I dug them for the move to our new house. My Mom’s have really taken off and she was more than happy to have me take some home with me in the late summer so she could thin hers.
It’s such a nice memory of Angie’s wedding. Aren’t they pretty?
My afternoon was going so well and I was right pleased with myself to be getting this yard work done before the next blast of cold air blows ~~~~~~~~~~~
I went inside to answer a phone call. See this box of Bone Meal??????
Somehow when I left my little cart filled with peat moss, the box of bone meal and my unplanted iris bulbs a strange thing happened!!!
Yep, Mr. Chester the troublemaker our 110 lb. German Shorthair decided to have an afternoon snack!! Who would ever think a dog would eat bone meal? I guess he read the word “bone”!!
Even the vet was surprised when I told him what had happened. He suggested we give him two tubes (one at a time) of Cat lax to keep everything moving through his system. He is also on Pepsid. Today we repeat the two tubes of cat lax. He thinks because of his size and the amount he ate, we should be okay.
My planted went by the wayside as I was off to Target to purchase medicine and Hair Ball remedy for good ole Chester Dog. Life is full of surprises, isn’t it??? :)
