When we moved into our house, we were the 3rd owners. The first owners included a gardener. Someone who made the yard beautiful with all kinds of flowers (or so I am told) and from what I have seen. We had an area of a yard that used to be a bed of weeds - or so I called it. I'm sure it was beautifully curated at one time but between the first owner and us, I don't think it was taken care of too well!.
Here's a picture from 2005 - nicely overgrown
Since then, we have scaled back on flowers, trees and weeds and made it fit our lifestyle. So here's the now picture:
When we were cleaning out that area, which we did in stages, my husband just wanted to whack everything down and then roto-till the land. However, in part of that wild area were hundreds upon hundreds of daffodils - they were just gorgeous in the spring. And all different varieties. And so I insisted on painstakingly digging each one up, because of course, I seem to think I live in a land with 100 hour days and I would have time to replant all of them. (Mind you, with 3 little kids underfoot.)
Picture of some of the beautiful daffodils....
Well, reality has set in, and I have finally, after many requests from my husband, decided to get rid of all of my daffodil bulbs. It's just one more guilt-ridden thing to look at that needs to "be done". So, I don't know how long daffodil bulbs are good for, but I put them on freecycle 30 minutes ago and already have 2 requests.Look at all those bulbs!!!
