RE: planting bulbs and watering

Crocus = squirrel candy. They do ok if you can keep them from being
eaten. That's why I plant stuff they don't like. Dallas got about 2"
yesterday, some places in Houston got 10" - that's what we needed. Hope
all is well w/ Noreen's place,

they had tornadoes to the south of Houston, she's west.  Will check the rain gauges when I get home.
Hoping for at least a couple inches.  If not, I'll be watering again by Wednesday.
