	These look great.  Hope you spread those 8,000 bulb out over a couple of years planting.  We eventually bought a bulb planting drill bit for our battery powered drill to make planting even a hundred at a time more easily done. Working as a team with one person drilling, the next planting and covering,  they go fast. The advantage to a large variety of cvs means an extended bloom season of a month and more. 

	Of course in my climate the first to bloom ( Rynveld’s Early Sensation’) often gets freeze damage, but later buds always give some show. And late bloomers are still going.

Not all garden (and what is garden has become too much to manage, 20 years on), mostly wooded so a portion provides our firewood for the wood burning stove each winter.
