1. Visit your local garden center. Beautiful full-color photos on the packages will entice you to buy enough tulip and narcissus bulbs to carpet the entire state of Michigan.
2. Find a spot to plant your new bulbs. Start digging the six-inch-deep holes as recommended on the package. Realize your lawn contains an incredible maze of rocks and tree roots. Keep digging test holes until you find a spot that’s not impossible to excavate. Spend the next six hours planting bulbs.
3. Sometime between March and May, depending on your climate, look out the window to watch the deer eat your beautiful “deer resistant” blooms.
