Lately, I have been going through a gardening phase. Not a "real" gardening phase where you get down and dirty on your hands and knees, fighting with icky bugs before you can dig a hole and plant something.
The bulb fertilizer was disgusting though, smelled like poop. It probably was poop since the box said "Organic". Ew. Now all I have to do is water and wait until... spring.
I'm going through a "buy a container, throw in soil and some bulbs" phase.
Last weekend, my handsome hubby drove back to the Half Moon Bay nursery. My last bunch of flowers have wilted away. This time I learned my lesson, no more annuals, just easy to care for perenials. I bought a bunch of 98cent Begonias. The nursery said that these things are tough and require very little care, so definitely perfect for me.
I also picked up some Ranunculus tubers, pink and white Freesia bulbs and 15 or so random Tulip bulbs. All I had to do was throw in soil, mix in a little bulb feed and then plant the bulbs 2-4 inches below the soil.
