Although this could very well be a picture of me finding a new treasure at a favorite nursery, it's actually an illustration by David Catrow for a children's book called Plantzilla.

Speaking of Bulbs...
While shopping at Molbak's last month, I saw this new to me twist on bulb planting in pots.
Just drop the little bag o' bulbs in a pot partially filled with potting soil, cover and wait.
Ready. Set. Grow! In only a few months, you'll enjoy a bumper crop of silk flowers.
These remind me a bit of the pre-measured coffee bags that hotels supply for their coffee makers. For me, a big part of the fun of planting bulbs, other than procrastinating until the last minute, is touching the bulbs. Handling these little packages of life and promise thrills me every time. The smell of bulbs and noticing the differences in the various corms/bulbs is one of the joys of autumn. Needless to say these didn't particularly appeal to me but it's a clever packaging idea. What do you think?
