Oh! It is TIME already! I received, today, my Van Engelen, Inc., Bulb catalog. But, I swear that last year's was full of pretty photographs. This one has drawings of generic types of bulbs. I love looking at the photographs, and dreaming and comparing-especially when pairing colors...
This catalog does not allow that. Glad that I already have my main bulbs in place, and only need to add to what is successful for me.

Addendum. This catalog is a wholesale catalog. Don't know why it came to me, honestly -but I sure did help to support the sister company, John Sheepers, last year. Got an email from them and it appears that my days of dreaming and comparing are nearing...! Yippee!

I forgot to mark the spots where we need to fill in with bulbs, so I might actually manage not to empty my pockets on bulbs this year -- for a change!

Grayce, I received my Van Engelen catalog yesterday too. Usually, the sister company John Sheepers catalog arrives the same day - it is the one that has pictures. They carry the same inventory, and I use both catalogs together - look at the pictures in John Sheepers, figure out what I want, and either order from Van Engelen if I want large quantities of a single variety - they sell in volume (like 50, 100, 500) or from John Sheepers if I want smaller quantities (like 5, 10, 25). Van Engelen's prices per bulb work out cheaper if you want to buy in bulk. My John Sheepers catalog didn't come yet either - hopefully soon! Terri
