Planting bulbs - a bit late

After I forgot about our new dafodil and tulip bulbs last fall and didn't plant them before the snow came, I stuck them in the fridge to chill them properly before planting them out this spring. The existing daffodils are budding out, but I needed to make sure the bulbs had been in the fridge long enough to mimic overwintering outside. This past weekend I planted them in our weedy bulb bed amongst the surprise bulbs we discovered last spring.
