If you ever need a lesson in delayed gratification bulb planting may just be your answer. This weekend the Remington Man helped me plant 40 tulips and about 40 daffodils. This time around I borrowed a little tool from my mother it worked a lot better than using a trowel. Basically you just twist the thing until it is filled with dirt and then lift it up.
You are left with a pretty little hole at the desired depth.
Then you just drop in the bulb.
And squeeze the tool and the dirt plops out back in the hole. I didn't take a picture of the dirt because I thought you knew what dirt looked like. However, it would have tied a nice little bow on this story.
Love tulips...they are my favorite. Unfortunately, they don't return very well here in Oklahoma. These bulbs came to me as a gift and gifts are meant to be enjoyed!
