daffodil peak / celebrating last summer’s elephant task

Filed under: gardening — noisedoctor @ 11:54 am

Last summer I spent several weeks excavating the rock along my driveway so I could have a nice flowerbed there. It was one of what I call “elephant tasks,” a seemingly impossible task analogous to eating an elephant.

This year’s hot-then-cold spring delayed my gratification a bit, but most of the 800 daffodils (and 50 tulips) I planted in the fall have now opened. I am stoked at how great the flower bed looks right now. Here’s what it looks like right now:
