If you are enjoying this beautiful day outside to get a jumpstart on your spring gardening chores, be careful! It’s a lovely day to be outside, but watch out for falling limbs if you are around trees! Grandma didn’t call those old dead limbs “widow makers” for no reason!
While I was out for a walk earlier, I saw Pops and Betty Wright working in their front gardens and they were transplanting daffodils. As we all know, autumn is the “real” time to plant daffodil bulbs, but, like many Daffodilians, Pops and Betty like to dig up some of their crowded daffodil clumps and divide them while they can see where their other daffodils are planted. Betty told me that each of the clumps the Pops has dug up today had no fewer than 37 smaller bulbs and they transplanted them all! Of course most of them won’t bloom this year, but they will in the future!
Enjoy the day! I’ve been talking with the Park Board so as we estimate the bloom times of the daffodils in the Township, we’ll have a better idea when our Daffodil Walks will be scheduled this spring. 🙂
