Okay, I am not big into lawns. We ourselves have what Ken Druse calls a “cropped meadow.” But to each his own. If you were affected by this summer’s drought, and your lawn has seen better days (or years), go read Yard & Garden Line News, published by the Minnesota Cooperative Extension, for some good advice on how to deal with the damage.

What differentiates a bulb from a perennial plant is that the nourishment for the flower is stored within the bulb itself.…There is something miraculous about the way that a little grenade of dried up tissue can explode into a complete flower.
