The weather lately has been very cooperative for playing in the dirt. I decided to see what bulbs I had stored away in my barn refrigerator. I have to wait until January to plant spring bulbs due to our short and mild winters. I usually give them a cold home in the frig for awhile before I start digging holes. So, barn cat and I set out with a bucket of bulbs and a "spring" in our step. Soon, she found a sunny spot next to the rhubarb and left me to dig holes all by myself. The shaded cedar post roof over one of my raised beds gave her a perfect napping place.
These large daffodil bulbs will be a welcome to Spring.

Cedar posts make excellent cover for more tender plantings. Letting the sun in but with a bit of shade.

    Zee, I think some of those daffodil bulbs in the first picture may come up as tulips!

      @Douglas Hunt You are right.. Tulips are planted here like annuals. For the first time in many years I threw in a package of 12 tulips into the mix. Guess they ended up at the bottom of my pail. How astute of you to notice. I keep waiting for Lowes to put tulips on sale, if I catch the mark down I will plant more tulips and will not call them daffodils:-).
