Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Fall's Labor

The 200 plus bulbs I planted last fall are really paying off.

Our company is still here...


Annie said...

Oh those are so beautiful. Tulips are my favorite thing about Utah in the Spring. Love you!

Rachel said...

I ♥ Tulips!! And you planted 200!!! Your my gardening guru! :)
Sadly it's supposed to snow today AGAIN! Where is spring?

I have bulbs in the freezer..
Why in the freezer?
Because I didn't have time to plant or buy any last fall and when I saw them on clearance for 1.00 a bag I grabbed a TON of them and threw them in the deep freeze. I need to get them planted now that the ground is no longer frozen. Well, after the snow is gone by the end of the week.
I have done it before and it works great!

Your flowers look so beautiful. I planted some in the fall too (although not 200 :) and I have been enjoying mine as well. Isn't it nice to see the colors outside after such a long winter. I hope you are having a nice time with your company. If you get a chance stop on over at my blog. I am having a birthday give away and I would love for you to come have a peek. :)

Mimi, your tulips are beautiful. Maybe I should try planting some around my house, if they grow that well in the cold. I really like your front porch and the whole front of your house and your white picket fence. Really pretty!!

Donna said...

Your bulbs look beautiful! I can't wait to see them next year when they've filled in a little!

I love your cute house. I also have a creamy yellow house with black shutters and a red front door, but it's nowhere as cute as yours!
