What is it? Planting bulbs!
I purchased lily, crocus and allium bulbs in July for delivery now (they're sometimes on sale then). I picked up daffodil and tulip bulbs at the garden center (just couldn't resist). I got some irises and daylilies from fellow garden blogger Marcia (thanks, Marcia!). And I had an entire bulb bed to transplant!

Remember the bulb bed that was in half shade last year? Well, all those bulbs will be finding new homes. I've planted pansies there now.
I'll see their little smiling faces all winter long. They're smiling because they know. They know that in the spring they will see all those bulbs burst forth as flowers, heralding in the arrival of spring. I'm smiling, too.
What about you? What bulbs did you plant this year?
