I just caved and bought a bunch of bulbs. Perhaps I should just give up my dream of a beautiful garden, but I just can't resist those lovely tulips, daffodils, lilies and the like. I'm sure I'll screw something up...either I'll plant them at the wrong depth or crowd so many in that I can't squeeze some annuals to cover up their decay in the late spring. Or perhaps I have bought too many and then I'll have to create new gardening spaces when I can't keep up with the ones I already have.
Ugh. But I just couldn't resist.
