Bulb Disappointments

In previous years, one of the stores where everything is a dollar had nice bulbs in packages of four tulips or daffodils, named cultivars. This year's pickings are not so enticing. Only 3 bulbs to a package brings the price up from 25 cents per bulb to 33 cents. The bulbs are not the sleek, plump bulbs of previous years, they're thin and shriveled. I decided to pass. There were mixed tulips, Carlton daffodils and packages of a scant handful of Dutch Iris and mixed crocus. What a disappointment!
