FedEx came by yesterday and picked up the manuscript (well, two diskettes) and photos for "Choosing and Using Bulbs." So now I get a break before whomever Timber Press assigns as an editor starts pestering me with questions. I just wanted to say "Thank you very much" to everyone here - those of you who patiently responded to my questions, offered observations on your own gardens, and everyone whose questions, comments, and answers on the forum confirmed my impression that of course the whole world loves bulbs. Judy in New Jersey where ark building should be my next project. We got 3.5 inches of rain from Sunday night through Monday, and heavy rain again last night.
