Too Late to Plant Bulbs

Yesterday, on the last above-freezing day, i finally put all my spring bulbs into the ground. People often ask me if it's too late to plant bulbs. "You can plant as long as the ground isn't frozen," i say.

Today the ground is frozen. Today it's too late to plant bulbs.

I planted most of my bulbs in pots, which are now hibernating in my garage. Next spring, when they bloom, i'll be able to pop them into the ground, exactly where i want them.

Now, with no more gardening projects hanging loose, i too can hibernate. For me, that means a tropical vacation with my sweetie, followed by a one-month self-retreat.

While our energy is dormant is a good time to go on retreat. Where and when are you going?
