GBMD: October

You ought to know that October is the first spring month

Karel Capek (1890 - 1938)

For once my bulb planting is in agreement ;)

Garden Bloggers' Muse Day is hosted by Carolyn Choi at Sweet Home and Garden Chicago.


  1. You are extremely well organised bulb wise.
    I am afraid Spring does not arrive until April 1st 2011 as far as I am concerned. Continuous rain all day today has confirmed my instinct to hibernate till then!.

  2. Tee hee - I'm usually months late with my bulb planting. I'm trying my friend Threadspider's approach to autumn this year. She thinks of it as a beginning rather than an end like usually do.

  3. the purple of your muck bucket and the yellow of the leaves go together very nicely.

    Yes, congratulations on the prompt planting!

  4. I currently seem to be better at buying more bulbs than I am at planting the ones I'd already got... And now apparently tomorrow is going to be wet, so I shall just sit here envying you your organisation and your purple trug... But I do love the fact that just as the garden heads towards dormancy you plant these funny little brown things that will turn into wonderful spring colour. Definitely a beginning!

  5. Lu - I'd like to say they were put together very carefully, but it was a lucky styling accident!

    Janet - don't worry, most years I've been months late with my planting and things have turned out OK. The trick is to make sure they're kept in a dark, cool place and they don't dry out.

  6. Hehe, I think Spring can stay in March/April for me too rather than October.

  7. Seed Parade - ah yes, but with a name like yours, you must be thinking about seeds for next year at least? ;)

  8. Well yes, this is very true I suppose! :D Heh
