Autumn Chores

I long for the bulbs to arrive,

for the early Autumn chores are melancholy,

but the planting of bulbs is the work of hope and is always thrilling.

  1. I have daffs waiting on the verandah but I am thinking of putting them in pots this year.. maybe for some early colour in the spring.. Love the promise of bulbs.. c

  2. Great quote from May Sarton. I haven’t run across her in a long time. A few weeks ago, we potted up some Amaryllis bulbs (which I am hoping will bloom for Thanksgiving) and some tulips (which I am hoping will bloom early winter).

    1. Thank you Kathy, I had it jotted down in a garden journal and thought of it when I was sorting the bulbs…Wow, you are going to have a beautiful daff display come Spring!
      And my hand is up, voting for gardening over cooking and cleaning! ๐Ÿ™‚
