Bulbs gone wild

Having studied and studied some more, the plant lists and photos from the Seasonal Walk at the New York Botanical Garden, I have come up with a short list of bulbs I am going to need to do this at home. I have created two shopping lists, one at Brent and Becky’s Bulbs and one at Van Engelen Bulbs. All together, there are just 525 bulbs in the orders. A measely 525. I ask you, “Who is going to plant these?” Or is this going to be another one of those bright ideas (Yes, Virginia, I’ve had more than one bright idea) where I am scrambling to get hundreds of bulbs in the day before Thanksgiving while I am waiting for both the turkey and the ground to thaw so I can get on with the jobs at hand?

Well, so far it is lookin’ very good on paper. And on the computer screen.
