It's fall, and all gardeners are thinking about bulbs. We have a wonderful selection at AmericanMeadows.com, but if you're anything like me, you are clicking around and fascinated by all the photos. If you don't, you should know about Old House Gardens, a fantastic site devoted to "heirloom" plants and bulbs. At this time of year, they have ancient daffodils and tulips for sale--magnificent old varieties available nowhere else. They're not cheap, but they shouldn't be. Some of these beauties have been around since 1200 or so. Some of them are the stars of the famous Tulipomania during the 1600s. They're all very rare. And all very very beautiful. Enjoy!
