Getting ready for Spring
This is a selection I bought today . If all goes well my garden will give lots of pleasure .
I can visualise even now the Tulips . I am always amazed at the beautiful glob of colour on top of a slender green stem .
I have Daffodils and anemones too . I also bought hyacinths for the pots and 2 pks,. of snowdrops .I don't expect a carpet of white this winter , it takes a long time for snowdrops to naturalise . I had such a measly few blooms last year . I know its best to buy them in the green , but lets see what comes through .
I bought 4 cyclamen for a pot of instant colour .
Yesterday the weather was glorious . I cleaned both fish ponds and the pumps so the fish looked swimmingly happy this morning .
I did a little weeding and scraping stuff growing in between the paths so all in all a good and satisfying day.
