As the summer begins to fade away, ordering bulbs for spring helps ease the blues caused by the realization that, oh, no, the garden is fading.
Here's what I ordered this morning (all photos are from OHG site)
Martagon lily - European mountain lilies
Early flowering, pink turk's cap type flowers, 3-4 feet tall
and a bit fussy according to the OHG catalog. Zones 3-7.
Prefer part shade.
Coral lily - native to Siberia! Zones 4-8. Can be short-lived
but self-seeds. Early flowering.
White Windflower Anemone - Strong white flower for bright
shade in zones 5-8. Here they grow to about 6-inches tall in
Avalanche daffodils/narcissus - grows 16-18 inches tall and has clusters
of sweetly scented flowers. It was discovered in Scilly Isles but has grown
well in our garden for years. We needed more! Zones 6-9.

The vegetable garden needs another few weeks of warmth.
