Keeping Track of Plants

So each spring I take photos of my garden beds, more specifically those beds that have tulips and daffodils blooming in them. If I don't, I won't remember in the fall exactly where and what is under the ground. 

For daffodils, I take photos to show how many are blooming in one grouping. If the grouping is getting crowded, then I know it's time to dig the bulbs up to divide them (and plant others else where).

For tulips, the photos help me to remember exactly where I planted them, so when it's time to plant more in October, I can plant new ones in the same location...or, decide to move them. Unlike daffodils, tulips don't need dividing - they just rot away. Pics also help me to remember what colors I bought the previous year, just in case I accidentally throw away the info card.
