My Breck's Order for Spring 2012 Has Arrived

For some people it's scary to mail order flowers. I thought there may be a few people who would like to see exactly what you get when your order arrives.  Both of my Breck's orders arrived this week. I am happy with what I received as it all looks healthy.  I got everything planted after work yesterday.   I thought it would take about 30 minutes, but it took three times that long. 

Here is what I got:

I ordered 12 Lionheart bulbs. They come in packages of 3.

I think the brown spots are supposed to be there.

I was surprised to see the toad lily "bulbs"

It looks like a root to me.
I don't really care, I just hope they grow! I planted 11 of them all along one of my garden paths. I forgot to soak them in water as it says, but I think they will be fine as it rained last night.

I planted 12 Crocosmia 'Fire King' bulbs in two containers.
I can move these containers anyplace I want them in the garden. I hope they bloom this year!

  The last time I tried Croscosmia it died after the first year.  I am hoping I can bury these containers in the soil against the house to help them survive next winter.

It's been quite the week for receiving mail orders. I also received these three tanks tops--all the same, except for the color.
I wouldn't be caught dead wearing these alone, but I think the bright colors will be fun to wear under summer shirts. 


  1. Christmas!! Don't you just love when the spring orders start coming in!! Can't wait to see those growing. You must not have had the winds we did here in the middle of the mitten--I couldn't get ANYTHING done outside.

  2. I just got an order today, most look good, but one plant looks a little stunted, very few leaves. Your lilies look great ready to go.


  3. Cool plants...I love that Toad Lily Mix...they should look amazing!

  4. Love that you got your order. I have always had very good luck with Brecks.

    Love your new tanks. I'm with you- no more tanks alone for me- I always wear a cover over these fat arms!;>) xo Diana

  5. Glad to know you have all your bulbs in the ground. I'm sure they will be fine and I can't wait to see them in your photos.
    Your tops are pretty!
    I have had a few orders too. I have to have something to look forward to, you know. I have gotten a few Vera Bradley pieces for a fraction of their original cost from eBay-all new with tags. That's about it as we need a new bathroom vanity as the drawers both broke in our 25 yr old one.

  6. Love your tops, they will look so cute under shirts. I was going to say if those came from Breck's I was going there next!

  7. I'll be waiting to see all your Breck flower. I was going to order something from there and never got around to it.
    I like the colors of your tank tops.

  8. Your order(s) look great. You purchased some nice plants. Like the colors on the under t's

  9. I cracked up when you said you thought it was take 30 mins and it took 3 times always does, doesn't it? Your new lilies will look stunning this summer =)
