October Bulb Planting Time

Welcome October!  I should have a picture of a pumpkin or a Jack-o-Lantern on this post, but I'm thinking about pansies today.  The temps this morning were cold out on the deck and I mentally replaced every pot of geraniums with a pot of pansies.  The picture above was from a few years ago.  I need to get started with my pansy replacing.

I read a blog post last month where the blogger suggested buying a 100 blue hyacinth bulbs to plant now for the delicious smell when they come up in the spring.  DH and I bought 2 bags (20 in all bulbs) of blue hyacinth bulbs from Lowe's.  Now we have to find the time to plant them.  I'm really excited about next spring.   We have over 100, maybe 200, golden daffodils planted in front of the house.  They just get better and better each year.

So much is happening in the world right now.  Spring bulbs seem inconsequential but we have to include beauty in our lives.  What about you?  What thing of beauty are you including in your life?
