A Splash of Color in the Sugarbush

Last fall as a test run for planting fall bulbs, I planted a whole bunch of clearance bulbs on the North Side of the Sugarbush.  This area is heavily wooded and being on the Northern edge gets limited sun.  I was hoping the sun would have enough time to make these bulbs pop before the trees had enough leaves to block out the sun and it looks like I lucked out.

The only bad news is that I have no idea what these varieties are…

Oh well, this fall I will need to pay a little more attention, and stick some markers in the ground for spring identification purposes.

  1. Beautiful – looks like Daffodils, Hyacinth, and Crocus. Color is a good thing after months of white. 🙂

  2. Your bulbs did much better than mine. I love the colors.

  3. I’m seeing this in February with snow piled high – which makes your flowers look all the more beautiful. Enjoy them for years to come.

    • It’s hard to think spring with even more snow in the forecast this weekend! Between my photos from last year and thinking about this year’s garden I am trying to block out the winter blahs.
