  1. I vote for the striped tool handles.

  2. What great gift ideas! I love that line of clothing pins! Gotta check out that link.

  3. Gardening bulbs can bring fine gardening within easy reach of people who love flowers but don’t have a lot of time to spend on their gardens. After you do your work in the fall, all you have to do is wait for the spring. Without any assistance your bulbs will come up. Some of the loveliest flowers come from gardening bulbs. Daffodils, lilies, star of Bethlehem, irises, bluebells, crocuses, and hyacinths all grow from bulbs. And let’s not forget the most famous product of gardening bulbs: the tulip. It gives a good look to our garden.
