Tulips -- Failure to launch

Ok, here's the lesson: when you plant tulip bulbs, especially if they're sprouting a bit, don't plant too deep. We here in California don't have to protect the bulbs from frost by planting super deep.

When you do this AND you water too much, the bulbs disintegrate. Gardening is exploration -- just like art. We learn by attempts and I just won't be daunted in the trying.

So, on to the lemon tree.
