Tulips are blooming along with phlox, grape hyacinth, and perennial Violas in this photo of just part of our front gardens. Spring is such a reminder of the birth of new life, dormant plants springing to life with bursts of color in a passionate frenzy. We love that the neighbors stop and compliment us on the gardens and go out of their way to walk by on their way to the park. Spring is probably my most favorite time of the year.
On Tulips and Daffodils, don't cut the foliage back too soon! When they are done blooming, you can cut the stems, but leave the foliage and let it die naturally. When it pulls free from the dirt, you can go ahead and clean up making way for summer annuals. The plants puts back all it's energy through the dying leaves into the bulbs, which will in turn give you more flowers in years to come. See some of my silk flower creations that include tulips here.
