Bulbs For the Garden
Sorry for the premature post there - hit the ENTER key on accident. LOVE when that happens - not!
Anyways, last night I made it out to the "Bulbs For the Garden" program held at the Mooresville Library and taught by the Morgan County Master Gardener's Association. Learned all sorts of things about bulbs - like the many different kinds (bulbs, corms, rhizomes, tubers and tuberous roots) and how to decipher which bulbs are hardy and which are tender and what that means to me (tender I have to pull up and store inside each winter and hardy I can leave in the ground). It was all very interesting!
The only fee was for materials but I didn't see anything that caught my eye (I already have a pretty lengthly list of things I want to plant this year) - but I did learn a lot!

And being the good blogger I am, I shot some photos while in class, though it was much to the discomfort of my fellow classmates. Got eyeballed even after I put the camera away. :)
