What bulbs are you planting?

My gardener, Shaun, and his crew are busy with autumn chores. The garden beds are being trimmed back and prepared for the cold days ahead. They've also been hard at work planting all of the flowering bulbs that I ordered. I must admit that when it comes to spring flowers, I have a tendency to get a little carried away. I just love painting the landscape with swaths of bright colors, a real treat after the long and harsh months of winter. My sources for these bulbs are Van Engelen, Brent and Becky's Bulbs, The Lily Garden,  and B & D Lilies. Please enjoy these photos of the planting process and be sure to visit my blog next spring when I'll post photos of these magnificent blooms. And by the way, have you gotten all your bulbs in the ground yet?
