Before these beauties decided to show themselves in my garden this Spring, I think only one other bulb in my entire life had actually done what bulbs are supposed to do. Granted, I lived in the desert. Bulbs don't typically like the desert, from what I hear.
I decided to give them another chance and picked up a bag of bulbs from Home Depot at the last possible planting minute. They were on clearance for $5 so I decided to give it a go. I'm so glad that I did.
There are probably 25 of these beauties in my garden this year. Every time another one pops up I can't help but squeal.
