The next phase of my guerrilla gardening: tulips and the later narcissus.  This is the third year for these tulips and there are definitely fewer than there were last year.  Fortunately, I just planted about sixty red emperor fosteriana tulips which should provide the same brilliant red color with better longevity.  I plant tulips and other bulbs that have been used for display and are done flowering for the year and will not be used in the garden for the following year.  Most large-scale plantings of tulips are ripped out and if you don’t care about having perfect swathes of lines of tulips, you can replant them randomly to enjoy the next spring.  Keep an eye out for these large-scale plantings and sometimes you can get the bulbs before they’re thrown out.
