Arrangements with Spring Flowering Bulbs

Spring flowering bulbs are some of the easiest plants to grow.  Fall is the season when bulbs such as tulips, daffodils and hyacinths are planted and all you have to do is dig a hole, add some fertilizer, drop in the bulb and cover with soil.  The hardest part is waiting for the flowers to bloom the following spring. 

After 6 months or more of waiting for the blooms of all those spring flowering bulbs that I planted the previous fall, I'm always hesitant to diminish the display by cutting the flowers to bring indoors for arrangements.  But a bouquet of fresh daffodils or tulips is such a treat, especially on a cold spring day.  I've come up with a system that allows for plenty of flowers in the garden and in my home.
