Gotta Garden

Autumn Ongoing...

My goal has been to have a garden which always offers me reasons to explore it. Amazingly, I'm getting closer....here's what I found in the last day or so....


Spider Lily or Lycoris radiata.....



Japanese Anemones...


Heuchera Mahogany....I'm looking forward to seeing other Heucheras put on fall color. Last spring, I remarked that one of my daffodils, Mount Hood, had greatly reduced blooms...lots of foliage...a clear sign that the bulbs were crowded.


I checked my spreadsheet and in 2001, I planted two (!) bulbs....well, no wonder they were crowded:


It's hard to imagine, isn't it....all those bulbs where just two were planted. I was able to plant back some in the original spot as well as move quite a few to a new spot...and even filled a gallon pot about halfway up with the leftovers. Those, along with some of Flower Record (that was pictured in another post), and some unknown yellows will grace a neighbor's garden. Think of this...I've just begun digging daffodils...

Your photos are gorgeous.
Thanks for reminding me that I still don't have any spider lily and I do want one / some! I guess I'll need to order some.

You are definitely the daffodil queen! All that from just 2 bulbs - remarkable.

Beautiful photos! And gotta love how those narcissus multiply! I hope mine do that!

Holy cow! Look at all of those bulbs. Apparently they are very happy at your house. :)
