Re: wagons and carts/bulbs

I can hear the birds chirping away outside.  It's still a bit too cold and
wet outside to head out there to do anything.  It rained on and off the last
36 hrs.  It was a glorious week, but the weekend - when *I* have time to
work outside - has been worthless so far.  The sun's come out though, so
hopefully I'll get a chance this afternoon.

As to bulbs....the Colchicum are all pretty  much done now and the
Fall-blooming Crocus have kicked in.  I have 'The Conqueror', which is
fairly large, blue, and cheap.

I did cut back on fall-planted bulbs this year - which is good because my
tennis elbow has returned with a vengence (shoulder to fingertips and now
includes some numbness)  Fortunately I got the ones I did order in the
ground before it occurred. 3 Fritillaria bucharica, 10ea of 2 Single late
tulips, 10 CandyStick species tulips, and some orientpet, A/L, species, and
heirloom lilies. Still more than I wanted, but it's hard to resist.

Still have had no leaves down to rake. Maybe next month.  Hopefully I'll
have my stupid arm back in shape for it.
