Out With the Old

The tulip bulbs arrived while I was on the road. 
Time to get to work…

First, I dug up the tulip bed.

I had to remove the old bulbs.
Sometimes I would get the 'Mother Lode' of bulbs,

A clump with mama bulb and all of her 'babies'.


More often, I had to sift through the dirt, 
picking the bulbs out one by one.
Some were teeny-tiny.
Here are the old… and the new.

I placed the new bulbs in the bed.
5" deep and spaced 5"-6" (or more) apart.

I replaced the soil, 
still finding more old bulbs in the process.

Stay tuned for the end result….

in the spring!
