PLANTING TULIPS (チューリップの植えつけ)

Last Sunday, we planted tulips.  

My wife planted purple and dark-purple tulips in the flower pot.  

After that, we went down to the potager and placed yellow and orange tulip bulbs alternately on three beds; a rectangular bed and two triangular beds.

By using a bulb planter, bulbs were planted after removing its label tapes which indicated its color.  The bulb planter is a prize of a Japanese garden contest held by the gardening magazine 'Garden & Garden' in 2012.  It is so useful to plant bulbs.

The beds were watered after planting bulbs.

My wife planted tulip bulbs, which were dug out from the potager beds in June, in plastic pots.  Color of each bulb cannot be determined.  No one knows what combination of colors in the pots.

  1. Dear Poirot
    It is so exciting to be planting bulbs and thinking ahead to next Spring. It will be interesting to see what the unknown colour combinations will turn out to be!
    Best wishes
