Flower Update

In early December, my son and I planted some tulip bulbs. I didn't think they were going to make it. Our soil was too shallow and we failed to refrigerate the bulbs prior to planting as recommended. Lo and behold, in March they bloomed.

Some more unexpected plant success, the California bush sunflower transplants now stand upright. It took almost a month.

I pulled volunteers from our dry-stack river rock wall and replanted them late in February. Below, a glimpse of them then.

The California bush sunflower is a very large plant. They will need to be replanted again to thrive. This potting of the volunteers was just an experiment. I'll see how they do here and possibly replant in an area excavated by the dogs when the time comes.
