Quick Spring Fix

So, finally got really tired of my winter planters. Been the same for way too long.

Wanted a quick and fairly inexpensive fix asap!

Here is a close up of the winter urns....
Some winter heather, a golden cypress, draping hemlock, cedar, and fir branches, plus pine cones and decor.

Got tired of these guys, been looking at them since November, time to go....

 
Removed the draping branches of hemlock, fir and cedar... threw them on the compost heap ...
Put away the pine cones on stakes for use again next year.
 
Planted up the heather into the garden, on the berm with all the other heathers from Christmas planters past ; )
 
 
Choose your favourite grocery store or garden centre forced bulbs...
 I chose tulips, little mini tete a' tete daffodils, grape hyacinths and hyacinths.  
 
Cute little Tete a Tete daffodils.
 

 
Then added some hyacinths, they look like they will be purple ones as the bulbs are dark and purple.
Also added some muscari, or grape hyacinths. They are not blooming yet but will add a lovely burst of blue as the sun begins to shine and heats up the soil.  

 
Covered the soil with a bit of moss and voila... an instant spring planter.
These blooms will all open up in just a few days, especially if we were to get a couple of sunny days.
However, is still a great improvement to me, no more winter...


 

Welcoming spring....
