Very nice but what comes up next? Tulips and grape hyacinth only last - What details do you require? I'm asking you a question.

In the summer the planting beds are converted into a veggie garden. Thank you for your interest!

What about the rest of the year? - The flowers in this picture don't last that long. What is planted in the beds the ret of the year? I know the stems have to stay a while if a repeat performance the next year is desired to allow the bulb to store food for the next show but empty beds viewable from the house for 10 months of the year ...........

Give your pinks a little depth by mixing them with a deeper coral.
LuAnn Brandsen added this to 10 Beautiful Ways to Landscape With Bulbs
10. Edge the garden. Use smaller bulbs like grape hyacinth or scilla as a colorful border to frame a more formal bulb garden or the early-season greens in a vegetable plot. Here, raised beds of pink and coral tulips are accentuated by grape hyacinth. Though a planting like this is stunning, you'll need to remove the bulbs after they bloom or add enough perennials or annuals to provide interest until the foliage naturally dies.More: 6 Unsung Bulbs for Fall Planting
Marianne Lipanovich added this to 12 Classic Bulbs for Spring Blooms
Landscaping ideas. Before you plant, it’s a good idea to think of the final look you want. A formal and somewhat traditional look is garden beds. The upright growth and intense colors give the beds a tidy look, and massing the bulbs together highlights the colors. Smaller bulbs, such as crocuses and hyacinths, work well along the edges of beds, in rock gardens and around the perimeters of ponds and creeks. The one drawback of including bulbs in a formal space is that if you’re planning to treat the bulbs as perennials, you’ll need other plants in the same area that will fill in when the bulbs die back, while masking the yellowing foliage until it’s time to remove the leaves.
