Hi, great round-up!
My entry was about dandelion buds, not bulbs... I don't think dandelion has bulbs :)

Katie said...

Kalyn and haleysuzanne - It was a great collection of posts! I enjoyed being continually surprised and impressed by the emails that I received all week :)

Cindystar - I've now added your post. Sounds great!

Graziana - I'm so sorry!! It seems like I would have noticed that dandelions don't have bulbs. Anyway, I've now fixed this. Thanks for pointing it out.
