Getting ready for Spring

Spring is almost here! I love the different bursts of color the plants have to offer. Saturday, I cleaned our front yard by removing the weeds and adding compost to the soil. It looks much better. On Sunday, I planted some Gladiolus corms. I dug them up in fall and stored in the garage. It's not necessary to dig them up in SoCal but I did it because I want to plant them in a different spot. I will plant some more this weekend.

I dug a 4-6 inch hole, placed the corm root side down, added some compost and filled up the hole with soil. Can't wait to see some blooms at the end of spring or during summer.
