The other week Maddison came with me on a guerrilla gardening strike. Either that or I brought some bulbs, a trowel and some earth on one of her daily walks but I prefer to think of her as a knowing conspirator keeping watch.

In April I committed to planting them in this area but never got around to it before the weather warmed up, at which point I decided to wait until fall.  Good thing too, I think they would have been in the path of the city lawnmower if I had planted them where I originally thought.

At some point on my walks with Maddie I noticed this stump appeared to be hollow in the middle and vowed to check  it out. It would not be the first time I have guerrilla-planted bulbs inside a stump. I hope these Allium Molly (small and yellow not big and purple) are successful in their stump garden like the daffodils I planted in Toronto were.

Cutting back the suckers is something the city would eventually get around to doing anyway so I brought my secateurs as well.

  1. thank you so much for linking in this weekend...I always love to find time to visit those who play along with my little party. It doesn't seem that I get around often enough...but I do try when I can! we got a HUGE dump of snow here yesterday and I am hating it already after the first few hours!!! I can't hardly wait for spring to come...It will be so nice to play outside again for a few months!

    I shared this post on the Tootsie Time facebook page
    I hope you will link in again every week!
