I love spring bulbs, but I really don't like how messy it looks after it blooms. Here's my flower garden in the front yard. Since this is my first time growing bulbs, I read that you leave the greens alone so that it gives more energy to the bulb for the following year. But look how gross this looks! Yuk. I can't wait until the shasta daisies and asiatic lilies start to bloom to add some color to this messiness. They are the tall green stalks in the back row.
