A while back I told you about a great opportunity to win a yard make-over with Taniya Nayak. Many participated and Ruth from Virginia was the lucky winner and is now enjoying her beautiful, colorful yard.

This handy tool helps you to find the perfect bulb for your area and is real easy to use by following the 4 steps; pick your country, pick your location within that country, choose the type of bulb you want to grow, and then check out the Planting Guide showing you how to best plant your bulbs.
I don't use any bulbs at all and I ought to, because there is so much more that can be done with bulbs. They are easy to plant and simple to maintain. You don't need to be an experienced gardener or have a green thumb; they can be grown inside as well as outside in pots and make great gifts, decorations, and an enjoyable pastime.
For more ideas, visit www.digdropdone.com to learn more. There are some great hints and tips from several ladies to help you achieve your goal. Personally, I can totally associate with Evelyn who, after raising children, finally has the time to spruce up her yard.
I made a mental note of her advice pertaining to potted bulbs; containers of summer-flowering bulbs can be left in the pot over winter. Just be sure to move them to a cool, protected place like an unheated garage. That is quick and easily done.
