My parents left on the weekend, but not before I put them to work in the garden. My dad planted two late ripening raspberries to go with our late ripening strawberries...right now we are eating the most yummy fresh strawberries and the plants still have flowers so hopefully we will have a couple more weeks of those. My mom and I planted around 100 or more tulips and daffadils.
Patty, there is no point in not going crazy and doing things small. Besides, I am so miserable here in Sweden in the winter that I long for the spring. Early spring flowers will certainly cheer me up after the long dark cold winter. I think when it is all said and done, I will need to buy and plant around 200 more daffadils to line my fence and of course some allium, snowdrops, hyicenths, and crocus. Hans often gets overwhelmed by my over enthusiastic response to things, but he has learned to deal with it. I just love the thought of everything in bloom and since they are perennials, he will always have them and not have to replant anything for years.
