We moved into Casa Tipton-Kelly in November of 2006. When the Spring of 2007 rolled around and I was very disappointed to notice that I had neglected to plant any spring bulbs, especially daffodils. How could I have forgotten that cheerful harbinger of Spring, the bright yellow daffodil to puncture the monotone drabness of the end of the previous winter?
I immediately made a vow that Spring day in 2007 to correct that oversight and plant plenty of spring bulbs the following fall. I thought I had planted a lot of spring bulbs in the fall of 2007, but when Spring of 2008 rolled around, there was only a smattering of yellow. MORE BULBS!
In the ensuing years I've been planting more and more bulbs and I think now, the Spring of 2014 (oh how the years do roll by) I'm getting there. I still have a long way to go but surveying and recording my Riot of Yellow this morning, I'm getting there.
Next up, the tulips!
