Bulbs and More

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Bulbs. Dig, Drop, Done. for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Lately since The Dedicated Daughter's birthday party that took place in the backyard; I've really been itching to be out in the gardens sprucing them up.  Blame it on slightly cooler temperatures. 

I visited Curbside Chaos mainly to get my planting guide.  While there I watched this cool video of the winner of the yard makeover.
How great is that?  What would I do if I won a yard makeover?  I would really fill in my existing beds, extend the patio, cover the patio, create beds along the fence line, and put in a water feature.  I think that would just about cover it. 

So, while on Curbside Chaos I retrieved my planting guide for my zone.  You should go check it out.  It's so easy.

Step 1:  Pick your country
Step 2:  Pick your location within your country
Step 3:  Choose the type of bulb you would like to grow
Step 4:  Check out the Planting Guide that shows you how to plant your bulbs. 
I also visited visit to learn more to get more help on bulbs.  I love planting with bulbs.  Most every Fall I plant a few new bulbs in my little gardens.  My favorite for the last couple of years has been the amaryllis.  My mom usually gives the ladies in the family an amaryllis bulb to start inside every Christmas.  Every single one of these gifts had ended up in my yard after we enjoyed them inside.  One of the great things about bulbs is that they do so well going from inside to outside.  

One of the best things about visit to learn more is they have these three great ladies.  The Dig, Drop, Done ladies.  Each one has great advice on gardening and their humor adds so much fun to the site.  I identify with Marcy the most.  She is a super mom who is trying to get it all done.   

Don't let Fall slip you by and neglect your gardens.  Head on over to Curbside Chaos and visit to learn more about what you can do to get your gardens spruced up and ready for the great bloom that is Spring.
