I am a bulb junkie. I think it may come from my mother’s love affair with tulips, hence her nickname for me actually being tulip. I tend to stick to daffodils in my perennial beds and tulips in stand alone annual beds (something mom doesn’t agree with), however some of these beauties might have me changing my mind about planting them throughout my garden!
There really isn’t anything that complements the blooms of Crabapples, Serviceberries and Red Buds that herald Spring in with a flash of color like tulips. But beware…if you have deer or bunnies, stick with Daffodils!

For one of the most astonishing bulb displays that I personally have had the pleasure of visiting, check out Keukenhof Gardens in Holland. It is a wonder to behold.
