Spring Forward - My WAHM Plan

Spring Forward

Courtesy of www.bhg.com

Since I've been slowly changing the scope and feel of my blog, I thought this would be a perfect time to introduce one of my favorite past times: Gardening.  You may be thinking my timing is off with the cold November winds blowing on many of us, but my favorite magazine, Better Homes and Gardens says otherwise.

They say: There’s Still Time to Plant Bulbs for Spring!
Don’t hang up your trowel just yet! There’s still plenty of time to plant spring-flowering bulbs. In fact, it’s better to plant them late this year than to try to store them for planting next year."

I  am very glad to hear this because I have been itching to do just one more project before Old Man Winter Takes over completely.  Are you a gardener too? Here are some BHG links for you:

Best Tulips for Your Garden

Deer- and Rabbit-Resistant Bulbs

Design Ideas from the Dutch

Add Spring Color to Your Lawn

Planting Tips

The first link, Best Tulips for your garden is where I discovered the amazing yellow Tarda Tulip above!

While you are there, don't forget to grab a free bulb and perennial plan here.  With it, you can plan and dream and have a garden like this next spring.

Isn't that pretty? It helps take the sting out of this blustery morning! I'd like it if you'd come back and let me know which Tulip you loved. I had such a hard time choosing just one.


  1. Following your blog on GFC. Welcome to MBS!
    Come link up on my blog directory at
    Happy Blogging,

  2. I love gardening! Though this year I forgot to put in the garlic and the bulbs for spring. I'm kinda sad. Guess I can work on it next year.

    Following you from SheSpeaks www.miscramblings.us

  3. You saved me! I keep trying to remember to put bulbs in I've purchased and other distractions come up. This fall is a winner thanks to you.

    I can hardly wait to see the giant alliums I'll be planting...once the rain lets up. Then I need to blanket my fig bush so it doesn't keep dying back to the roots.

  4. Now is the time, if you're in the south, to plant your garlic. I'm just ill equipped at the moment so I fear it won't get done.

  5. Hi Pam,

    Thanks for stopping by! I'll be sure to visit you soon.

  6. Hi Tami,
    Thanks for the follow, I'll visit you soon. There is always next year or next season! Gardening is a forgiving hobby.

  7. Hi Donna,
    Yay! Glad to be of help.
    Thanks for reminding me of Aliums! I need something for this hard to grow in shady spot in the front. I really like the bluish purple ones.
    What color are yours?

  8. Hi Heather,
    Thanks for the reminder to plant my garlic! I always forget it, which makes no sense in this family where we use it often!
