Plant your summer bulbs soon!

Are you seeing spring bulbs popping up around your neighborhood, cursing yourself for forgetting to get some in the ground last fall? It may be too late for tulips and daffodils but look what I found at Wal-Mart yesterday.....
 Caladium Bulbs!!  
Caladiums are tropical plants which come in a variety of colors and combinations. They are native to the banks of the Amazon River in South America. The main colors are red, pink and white, and each different type of Caladium has its own unique and exciting color combination.

 They can go in the ground, in a pot, in the shade, in the sun; you can't hurt these beauties. That's my kind of plant. AND, plant them once; they come back year after year! Now we're talking.

I was cracking on Nicki Minaj on Idol for saying she was obsessed with every contestant. Well, I. AM. OBSESSED. WITH. WHITE! They are called Florida Moonlight and I want them everywhere! Buy them here: Happiness Farms

Oh, would somebody find me this piggy planter in bunny-form? Pretty please WITH a cherry on top!

Caladiums thrive outdoors during the warmer months and add a lush, exotic touch to your yard or garden. Most Caladiums are at home in the shade or partial shade, but some varieties are more sun tolerant and can be planted in areas with little shade. They are a great way to add color to shady areas. They are often used as border plants, alongside homes, or in beds. They may also be used in window boxes and make stunning patio container plants.

So if you live in NC like me, you have to wait a little bit longer before you can plant, but that gives you plenty of time to PLAN your border or planter and to locate all the neat varieties of these wonderful plants!
 Happy planting!
