Earlier this year, I celebrated turning in SOME LIKE IT HAWK by going on a plant- and bulb-buying spree. But other deadlines loomed up, and I never found the time to plant them all. Especially the bulbs, since I knew better than to plant them TOO early. I added them up and realized I had over 400 bulbs to plant before the ground froze.
Therefore I declared today "Finish Planting the Bulbs, Dammit" Day. I got them all done except for the tulips. I'm going to plant the tulips in large planters on the deck, with hardware cloth on top, to see if that discourages the squirrels, chipmunks, and other rodents from eating them before spring. And I can't figure out where I put the hardware cloth.
So tomorrow is "Tidy the House and Garage Until the Hardware Cloth Turns Up" Day.
Today added camassias, hardy glads, galanthus, muscari, puschkinia, crocuses, and daffodils to my yard. If all goes as planned, tomorrow will bring a little year-end order to my life.
And maybe a couple dozen tulips if the hardware cloth turns up. Followed by copious napping and the consumption of Advil, if tomorrow's marathon is anything like today's.
