I have always loved and appreciated living in a climate with 4 distinct seasons but I have to be honest, Spring time in Cedar City is TERRIBLE!! The sun isn’t warm, the snow continues to fall and the wind ALWAYS blows. By April I am so ready for summer I can’t stand it and part of my anxiety comes from wanting to see something colorful.
Position bulbs: I wanted some color lining my sidewalk so I laid out my tulips exactly where I wanted them along the cement.
Pull back the grass: This can be done easily with a spade, to get started, and a pair of gloves.
Place the bulbs under the grass: I didn’t even dig a hole, I just buried the bulb with the lawn.
*** Wait some More***
When the weather doesn’t allow for anything else to be beautiful, enjoy the tulips!
