I’m not a patient person, so the idea of planting something in the fall and not seeing any results for 6 months is hard! But spring flowers like daffodils and tulips and crocuses are some of my favorites! And the only way to enjoy these spring blooms is to plan ahead.
So in September Adam and I planted 50 tulips bulbs around the oak tree in our front yard and waited. Six months later I was antsy to see if they survived.
I did a little happy dance when I discovered 50 little plants poking up through the dirt (yes, I counted them!). If the weather stays as nice as it’s been they should be blooming in another week or two! One of the houses on our street already has daffodils blooming!
As much as I complain about Iowa winters, I do love the changing seasons. I always wonder if I would appreciate spring as much if it didn’t come after the winter. Obviously God has a perfect plan for these things! I just hope the weather stays like this all spring. I’ll take 70 degrees and sunny any time!
