gardening 1:00:00 
Dug out some of the bulbs that are under water in hopes that they will survive. I don't think the ones that are left will make it til next year. Got to wear my new rain boots, knee-highs with steel toes. Excellent for the job except for when I stood in one place for more than a couple of seconds and they got stuck in the mud...which wasn't really bad until I went to move and ended up sitting in a foot of water, what a mess! Luckily, it was warm enough that I was able to continue...was too lazy to bother with going in to change clothes and figured there was a good chance that it might happen again....but it didn't. Put all of the daffodil and iris bulbs in buckets, left the tops on so that they can continue to grow....am hoping for the best.
