House Plans for the Weekend

Anybody got specific plans for the weekend? I want to do some gardening.

I don’t know what I am doing with gardening, it’s only spring #2 in the house. The previous owner had a nice flower bed, but the guy who flipped the house tore up most of it and laid sod instead. Last year the lawn mower guys mowed over all the bulbs that came up through the sod (it was a miscommunication accident), so aside from some hyacinths which were already blooming no clue what was all there.

But some of the bulbs have been like FUCK YOU I’M ALIVE and came up this year in the grass! I want to transplant them to the garden area up by the house. I don’t even know what they all are. Some are hyacinth. Some look kinda like hyacinth but not quite. Some look like tubular grass but are bulbs, google has not been helpful in identification there. No, it’s definitely not onion grass. And there’s 2 clumps of star of Bethlehem (that one I did have success with the googles with). Also I bought a few tubers at the store back in late January to plant - bleeding heart and astilbe. I had an astible plant at the teeny tiny garden at my old condo and it was one of those “so basic and easy even I could manage to do it” plants that should come back every year, so fingers crossed it likes where I plant it.

I also bought a cute little purple shamrock plant at the florist section in the grocery store in early February, going to plant that little guy in the yard, too!

Alas, it is currently raining, so not yet able to get out there and get my hands dirty.
