Sadly, my gardening vacation is at its end. It’s Sunday morning. My body is wrenched to the side to type this, my lap board and laptop tilted at 45 degrees due to one side being propped on the chair’s arm, all because a cat is sleeping in my lap and I don’t want to disturb her. I listen to birds chirp, and I watch the feeder swing in the wind. I’m soaking it all in before I head back to work tomorrow.
I planted bulbs in October: tulips and daffodils. I’ve never planted bulbs before. I usually don’t have any gardening energy left in the fall, but for years I’ve been saying I wanted to plant bulbs, and last year I finally followed through. And the flowers are emerging! I’m so excited to see that they actually worked. Plants are amazing. It was totally worth what probably amounted to ten minutes of planting time once I bought the bulbs. I can’t believe it took me so long.
Everything is cut back and pruned. The flower beds are all mulched. I’ve set a daily reminder to water the flower baskets. It looks like we’ve got some warm days coming up this week. I can’t wait to sit on the back porch on my lunch break and watch the garden grow.

Beautiful pink tulips — my very favorite!
