2 days and over 18,000 bulbs - and they're all gone. Every last one was picked up by a resident of one of the hamlets of our town to be lovingly planted in their gardens, alongside the roads and in front of churches, synagogues, schools and bus stops.
Well, probably lovingly at first - and then they'll just start tossing them in the ground. 18,000 is a heck of a lot of bulbs!
Honestly I really didn't think that we would be able to get enough people to take the bulbs and agree to plant them. They did, though. I think it has a great deal to do with my DH's gift of gab. He talked up the planting project from one end of town to the other - and people were really enthusiastic about it.
Now comes the waiting for Spring and hoping that they all bloom their little hearts out! It's going to be gorgeous. You gotta love flowers.
