The side walk in front of our house is a mixed of concrete and bricks. There are also a couple of dirt patches. The whole thing would be full of random stuff if we neglect it for too long. Just like this, up-close.
In December we cleaned one of the patches (we planted a baby olive tree on the other one last year - which reminded me that I haven't blogged about it yet...oh...coming soon, coming soon!) - and planted some tulip bulbs. We've never planted tulips before, so even though we picked up a package that says "guaranteed to grow" in the nursery, I was still a bit nervous.
"The pointed end goes up."
Fast forward 2 months later, check out some of the colors coming out of these little guys!
