Bulbs.



Stephen gave me a very special Christmas present this year: bulbs. A backyard (cement New York slab of a backyard) full of bulbs. A hundred or more. Tulips, narcissus, fritillaria, crocus, hyacinth, all sorts. Out our kitchen window will be a popping sensation. Stephen is sort of the bulb expert. He instructed us with precision and the bulbs seemed happy in their spots. You'll see the results when spring lands. Soon!

What a fabulous Christmas present!!

Word of warning: Put some mothballs in there, too, or the squirrels will eat the bulbs!! I gave my daughter a bunch of tulip bulbs for her birthday, and the squirrels got nearly every one.

Good idea! We have already seen some squirrels out there and bought metal mesh to cover the bulbs! Naughty squirrels. I had no idea bulbs were a treat for them...
