Flower Power

All the spring bulbs are planted! 

I took advantage of likely the last (gorgeous) warm day of fall.  68 degrees.  Windy, but beautiful.
Brodieia. Planted right outside the back door. Hoping these smell as lovely as they look. 
We have about 2000 bulbs planted in the backyard.  But there's always room for more, especially when it's for a good cause.  The Michigan Women's Center and Hall of Fame offered spring bulbs as their yearly fundraiser.  Since I'm all about the women's history AND flowers, this was a perfect opportunity to support two things I love.
Daffodils.  The happiest flower on the planet.  These are double ruffles!  Double the happy.
The fundraiser is run by Flower Power, who returns 50% of every purchase to the fundraising organization.  Win!  I am really impressed with the simplicity of ordering, their customer service (bulbs arrived exactly when promised) and the quality of the bulbs.  If you or your organization are looking for a great fundraiser, check Flower Power out.
Glory of the Snow.  These will be the first to come up this spring.  And I'm told they spread like crazy.  I think they'll look gorgeous mixed with my Johnny Jump-ups.
While I was planting, I thought about how flowers are like beads.  Always different.  Always beautiful.  Always inspiring.  Always something I want to surround myself with.  Always the reward at the end of the winter (or long day of schoolwork/life).
Sweethearts collection.  Tulips and white daffodils - come with every order.
