Oh man, oh man. I hadn't been bad over the winter to order plants for the garden but really did just go nuts just now. Just hit the order now for bulbs from COLORBLENDS. Mostly Tulips. I have never ordered from colorblends before but I have seen their tulips on their website. They really have the most beautiful tulop blends. So I ordered-

100 1295 Bloomsday
100 1414 French Blend
100 1417 Parrot Blend
100 1474 Three Queens
100 1464 Pillow Talk
25 1302 Beauty of Spring

Polly, this is only my first bulb order for this fall. I intend to have lots more as I am also going to order from Brent and Beckies , Scheepers and Van Engelen which is the wholsale side of Scheepers. Some I intend to get at Van Engelen because when you do 100 of a variety (or more) it is much cheeper at Van Engelen. In fact 100 there is about the same as 50 at Scheepers. But I do also have to order at Scheepers because they have the smaller amounts. Like 10, or 20 of a variety you can not buy at Van Engelen.

I will be getting lots more tulips and daffodils. Plus also a large amount of crocus. Then some Dutch iris, Iris reticulata and also some Chionodoxa. You should see my lists and notes I have made and am still making about what to order and were it will be planted. Hilarious!
