It is great to buy bulbs in June (when the early bird discount applies and you can see all the holes in the spring planting) and then completely lose the email invoice. I wonder did I? or did I just think about it? If I did, what are they? And when might they show up? I could call the company but that would take all the fun out of it!

What I do know, is I had a Plan.  Capitals please note.  Back when the ground wasn’t baked rock hard, when I remembered what needed more where, when I wasn’t rather too busy with other things, and beyond behind on still others, and so forth.

Sometimes gardens get ahead of one. This actually isn’t a bad thing.  If they didn’t attempt to get out of control, aided and abetted by the gardener, we probably would never do anything to them. We would just sit there and smell the roses.
