I decided to expand my perennial garden next year and found these gorgeous flowers at Michigan Bulb.  I started the perennial garden below this year and want to add to it in the spring.  I fall in love with these pink bouquet tulips.  I’m going to add them along with Alpine Rosy Bells around the rocks in the garden.    


I currently have Knock Out Roses and Yarrow planted.  I will be adding more rocks to give it a more naturalized look.  I had a difficult time keeping the weeds down, so landscape fabric is must in the spring. 


I live these pink parfait lilies.  I’m going to plant these behind the birdbath and feeder shown in the picture.  I hope to mix in some wild flowers and add a bird house.  The great thing about bulbs, you plant them once and the plants come back each year.  Planting bulbs is a great way to add color next spring and summer and an inexpensive way to expand your garden.  The stock at Michigan Bulb has gotten low, but check out Lowes or Home Depot.  They usually have a good selection of bulbs for fall planting too.  Winter is around the corner, hurry before you miss your bargain.
