My bulbs arrived today in great shape. It's a little cool outside at 40 degrees, but a great day to plant bulbs. Thanks so much, Bert, for hosting this co-op. I really needed the bulb digger, too. My old one bit the dust last year.

Mine came too, all are wonderful as usual I tip my hat to you.
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

Joy,

I am a tad over 39, so got plenty of experience and have a ball showing the crew how to do it.

As sson as the 4-wheel truck is repaired so I can get the 5th wheel out of the hole it is in, I am on my way.

I received my Lilies on 3/11/2015 and potted them soon after. Here is a photo of them doing very well in my west window. As you can see, we are getting snow today. I saw a robin a few days ago and this is the first snow on his tail. We could get 7 + inches ending sometime tomorrow. I hope this snow counts for all three that is suppose to rest on that tail. Rolling on the floor laughing So far there is 2 1/2 and the worst is suppose to be over night.

I'm feeling so sad for you with all that snow. If you can get out, come to the Pnw. We've been enjoying an extra early spring since February. I think I'd be in full blown cabin fever with so much snow in March. StAy warm. Spring will get there.

I received my package too. Thank you Bert for the wonderful planting tool. I have a question for you. How long can I keep the bulbs in the bag before planting them. My area is too cold and wet to do any digging. And it looks that this cold weather will be all this week. Sad

Sure wish I could Joy. I have never been there but have been close. I got to Montana once and used to live in Las Vegas so made many trips to CA. I am really glad that I did not jump the gun and do more work in my flower beds on those few really nice days we had. Spring will eventually get to us. I am glad to hear that you got an early spring this year. I will post pictures some place on ATP when the time comes. Happy gardening to all.

Hi Karen @kousa I'm in SE PA too...I'm keeping mine in the box, out on the porch close to the house until planting time if that is any help to you...looks like we're in a cold snap again for at least most of the week.

Keep them as cold as you can, but open the box so you can see how they grow and if the sprout starts to grow more then an inch, I would plant them in a pot and transplant them later.
