Over the fence

We live on a corner lot and across the street from us on one side is a large empty lot.  It's owned by one of the churches in the neighborhood and most of the year it is just grass.  But in the spring it is covered with Muscari.  They give a look reminiscent of the bluebonnets that will be blooming along the highways any day now.




We think about planting bulbs throughout the lawn from time to time, but we've never taken the plunge.  I think it's mainly due to the time that bulb foliage needs to recharge the plant.  that's way you typically won't cut bulbs back until after the foliage turns brown and they go dormant.  They need that time to photosynthesize and make food for the next year.  Without that, they will grow weaker and weaker over time.
