Has anybody had experience/success with planting bulbs (Big Bear)? My parents aren't up here full time. They come once a month or so to check on things and water plants. They had a row of evergreens up against the front of the house and had to remove them because they were combustible. This left an ugly block foundation exposed. I'm thinking of planting bulbs in that bare space. I'm spending all or part of the summer up here and will be able to water as necessary. I got some paper white narcissus as a gift years ago. I planted them in my Joshua Tree yard and those things keep coming back year after year but It's so hot that they don't last long.

Hi Eva,

I have some tulips and irises that magically appear every spring. I also get some daffodils and crocuses but I don’t know if they are bulbs. But I don’t do anything with them other than waiting for them to appear.

I think you may need a cold snap and then warm weather together going.

Good luck

Most of those bulbs last a couple of weeks in the spring only. Daffodils are the only ones the critters don't seem to like the taste of. You might be better off buying a wildflower mix seed and spreading it that will stay blooming all summer

Thank you! I did read something about putting bulbs in the freezer before planting. I'll stick the ones I have on hand in the ground and go get some wildflower seeds too.

I have volunteer tulips every year in spite of the fact the rabbits and other vermin seem to dig them up every spring The neighbor has lots of daffodils because the vermin dont like them.

Daffodil are not edible to squirrels, which will be an important feature when their population increases. Other bulbs will be ok for the current population, but will get wiped out when the are more squirrels. As pointed out, they only bloom for a couple of weeks. Lilacs may be a good choice for low maintenance shrubbery. Again, they only bloom for a few weeks. If watering is an option, Shasta daisies do well in BB and will bloom all summer. They winter over nicely.

The second wave of painted lady butterflies has hatched and a fresh litter of bunnies have emerged. It always amazes me how animals are great at sharing the earth yet the large brained ones can't even share the road.

A.R.....even though Grout Creek and a few other lake feeders are still flowing, volume is such that we`re looking at a few more inches max...
The good news is that you don`t have to extend the gangway/dock out nearly as far to get to proper depth this year!

Hey Lake People. As it is so nice to see blue at the east end once again, what are the chances we will get another couple of feet in the next month or so. Would so love to put new owners dock out for the first time in 6 years???????

NSA, from another former scouter, Kudos on so many years of service and you are still going strong. Just goes to show that it just a couple of morons followed by and idiot or two to really fowl it up for the good ones and for the kids. An experience I would never want to forgo.

Was a scout leader for my two boys (both earned eagle rank) and the rest of the troop of about 70 boys. Was the cooking merit badge counselor, led 12 summer camps (one to Crater Lake, OR another to Philmont Scout Ranch NM), had a group of 11 Tiger Cubs (1st graders) of which 7 earned eagle. Also won 7 adult Golden Spoon camp cooking awards! Our troop (Fullerton 1201) was formed 1919.
