Transplanting Spring Blooming Bulbs

It is now November, and my outdoor grounds crew is busy with autumn chores. Among them, planting all the spring blooming bulbs. I plant thousands every fall, thinking about the swaths of color that will appear after the long, gloomy months of winter.

This season, I decided to move some of my existing bulbs first - lilies to the area along my clematis pergola, and the scilla and squill to the daffodil bed outside my Tenant House. This required pulling up some other plantings, and stripping and moving some sod, but it will all look so fresh and beautiful come spring - I can’t wait.

Here are some photos. Have you planted, or transplanted, any of your bulbs yet?
