1. If applicable in your area, have you planted your bulbs yet?

2. What was the roughest airplane ride you have ever been in?

3. Do you go apple or pumpkin picking in the fall?

You put chicken wire around all your flower beds? How high is it?

Yes, they were tulip. I had them around my mailbox and then I didn't-lol!!!

I have a bunch of other things to plant this year, hyacinths are one.

You plant the bulbs and then you put a layer of chicken wire about four inches in the soil. Then you cover it up with dirt, and it sometimes discourages the dumbest among the squirrels.

Noooo, not around the flower beds, in the ground.

I have early spring bulbs all around my hostas because by the time the spring flowers are fading, the hostas are starting to come up.

Oh, ok-lol!! I thought she meant around them as I couldn't imagine why you would want to do that-lol!! As you can tell I am not a gardener. I would like to plant more perennials though around my yard.

I have done that in my one bed in the front. I would plant the annuals around it and in the middle would be the mums. I might just do that again this year. I haven't planted mums in a few years. I usually just buy one large pot and put it on my porch.

I have a whole row of yellow ones along my sidewalk in the front yard.
