Last month was my 2nd year anniversary, and the hubs surprised me with a bag of daffodil bulbs. He listens well. He knows that I've been wanting to buy bulbs for the front flower garden. I love flowers and plants as gifts, so this made me super giddy.
White Flower Farm. His Grammy had sent 2 Nancy Nora Peony bare roots as an anniversary gift. It was so thoughtful of her. Peonies are my most favorite flower. I absolutely adore them, from the large blooms to the fragrance! It's so wonderful. The bare roots came nicely wrapped in wet newspaper.
Crocus Sativus from McClure and Zimmerman. $7.95 for 12 bulbs, I thought that was a great bargain. I ordered from them because I read on Greensparrow's blog that they were a good company to order bulbs from. I ordered these bulbs after reading about them on Greenish Thumb. I never knew that is where saffron comes from. I love using saffron in cooking but I rarely buy it because it's so expensive. How awesome that you can grow your own. I bought a dozen bulbs to plant in the garden, I can't wait until they come up next October! Fun!!
