Oh Carrie, if only I had read your article $200 ago! I was just out walking round my garden (front & back), trying to peer through the grass and weeds which have magically appeared in my iris and roses so that I could figure out: where I might plant the bulbs I just bought at the local iris club sale, the salvia and ipheion that I thought I'd just "tuck in" someplace, the daffodils that I don't think the deer and rabbits will eat this year. I've bought some more Dutch iris hoping that I remember where the bulbs are that I planted last year and the year before so that I don't enthusiastically dig them up while planting the new ones. In my mind, the garden will be gorgeous and I will lounge on the patio or the back yard, enjoying the art of my year-round blooming scheme. Alas--though I know that I'll be surprised and happy with everything that does survive, I also know that when I consult the lists I've made to see all the things that I've bought and planted in the fall that are missing in action, and with your article in mind, I'll make a new resolve to restrain myself. HA HA!! (and alas)

I was just writing to someone else about how I should have resolved to MARK THE LOCATIONS! Now that my yard has many more bulbs than when I first wrote that article, I all too frequently send DH out to plant X in Y spot and he'll report back that there was already something else - another bulb? a prized perennial? in that spot,but no worries, he's removed it and planted X there instead! I feel your pain! Thanks for you comment.

I'm sorry to be so late; I was away from computer and the real world.
