A Path of Tulips and Daffodils

Hopefully, this walkway will be overflowing with Tulips and Daffodils very soon to welcome us home and greet our guests. Although it is far too early in the year to plant these Spring flowering bulbs, I transplanted some bulbs I started last Fall in containers. Spring flowering bulbs must be planted in the Fall so they can have time to establish strong, healthy roots. They are growing, and I am hopeful that they will bloom this year. Most of them have very nice root systems started, so chances are good that they will make it. I added a teaspoon of bone meal to each hole to help their roots grow stronger, and we mixed in plenty of peat, top soil and manure to fertilize and loosen up the heavy clay soil.

We transplanted the sod to a place in the backyard that was barren. I think it was barren due to a lack of sunlight and an abundance of pine needles though, so this grass might not make it either, but we gave it our best try!
