THE SUN IS SHINING


Oh happy day !!





 Aren't these just beautiful..?
This was a lot of work for someone..





 I hate to be a negative Nancy but the problem I have with bulbs is that in about a week these will be pretty dead and you are supposed to leave them alone until all the leaves are dead.
This nourishes the bulbs for the next year.
It seems that they look bad longer than they are beautiful.
I'll bet they cut these off anyway.

Enjoy the sunshine and fresh air.

When we had bulbs, once the greenery started to look bad, we would pile pine straw on top.

Hello Missy, It was a pretty day yesterday! And the daffies are beautiful. If you leave them, they spread even more the next year right? Have a happy day!

Sun is shining here too but cool! I tend to agree about those type of flowers, but they do look pretty while they last.

Missy, You made me laugh...I too have often thought the same thing about bulb flowers. But oh boy when they are in bloom, they sure are pretty. Hope you have a wonderful week and lots of sunshine..I am so ready for this week. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

Guess the best idea, would be to plant the daffodils, in the "back".. With a later blooming flower, in "front" of them. So when the daffodils fade, the front flowers will "cover them up"...

Maybe? A bit too much work, for me though.

i always want to ask how do folks dry their laundry like that - without getting bird droppings on it? you were speaking of a negative Nancy ...i guess that goes in there too. but it makes me curious? maybe folks don't worry about it? ( :

Missy, Missy . . .
Those are the same words I have said . . . about bulbs and why I don't have many. I wonder how many wait the full time for the foliage to die back and fall off after the flowering has finished. I love the flowers but not the ugly aftermath . . .

A tough decision. My neighbors have them and let them go until completely gone, and then clean up. But they're in the back yard, so no biggie.
