Planting Flowers

I've gotten started on planting fall bulbs.  Previously I set out the grape hyacinths in the purple-and-white garden, which is under a tree at the southeast corner of the patio.

Today I planted some of the giant crocus bulbs.  These will bloom in white, purple, yellow, and white with purple stripes as in the picture.  I put them in a ring around the goddess garden, just inside the bricks.  There are plenty left -- it's a bag of 50.  I plan to put some in the rain garden by the house, and some in the tulip garden by the driveway.

Some other stuff I'd enjoy picking up, if I have a chance:
* Fire-colored tulips and more hyacinths to go around the barrel garden.
* Purple or white tulips and crocus for the purple-and-white garden.
* Some kind of white flowers for the white garden at the end of the driveway.
* A big bag of daffodils for making protective rings around trees, part of ongoing permaculture development.
