I Don't Know What to Do: Front Yard Color
My wife and I moved into our home about 10 years ago. What you see in the front is pretty much what was here then. Things have grown. We battle the weeds. I've pulled out some dead stuff. The bushes have grown. I hack them back, they grow again.
We would like to have a rotation of flowers. It seems some homes have the daffodils followed by the tulips followed by tiger lilies (I think), etc.
My problem is I don't know how to plant and maintain flowers. I am willing to learn, but whatever I search for doesn't seem to be what I need. I pretty much need someone to explain (or point me in the right direction) of what to do.
After mowing and trimming yesterday, I was motivated today to get some tulips. I know bulbs go in the fall, but I figured I'd just plant them today. No go. Five days after Easter, there isn't a tulip in town.
Here is the front of the house:

I appreciate any assistance you can offer.
