Thanks !

my bulb garden is nearly all uncovered now! Woohoo!!

I sure hope my bulbs bloom as nicely as yours are!

RE: A day in my garden -- Pics

I love bulbs because a) They're early and b) They weather crazy temps like pros! and c) they're cheap! lol

Flower bulbs are also easy to take care of. A dose of bone meal and a tad of compost and you are on your way!

Just... don't plant them in water... they rot, but I've seen them growing by stream shores so sometimes I wonder if their water sensitivity is restricted to certin cultivars or is a complete myth.

Coming soon per request: Peonies, columbine and other, later bloomers.

Trouble is...this far south many don't do well unless you refrigerate them for a while. Some people down here have a lot more success with them than I do, but I've never seen a bulb garden this far south to compare with the ones further north.

Oh! right! But please don't feel bad. Nothing IMHO compares with southern tropicals!

Sorry I took so long to get back to you.
