Musing on life in the heart of rural Wiltshire. Well, erm Chippenham actually...
You are extremely well organised bulb wise. I am afraid Spring does not arrive until April 1st 2011 as far as I am concerned. Continuous rain all day today has confirmed my instinct to hibernate till then!.
Tee hee - I'm usually months late with my bulb planting. I'm trying my friend Threadspider's approach to autumn this year. She thinks of it as a beginning rather than an end like usually do.
the purple of your muck bucket and the yellow of the leaves go together very nicely.Yes, congratulations on the prompt planting!
I currently seem to be better at buying more bulbs than I am at planting the ones I'd already got... And now apparently tomorrow is going to be wet, so I shall just sit here envying you your organisation and your purple trug... But I do love the fact that just as the garden heads towards dormancy you plant these funny little brown things that will turn into wonderful spring colour. Definitely a beginning!
Lu - I'd like to say they were put together very carefully, but it was a lucky styling accident!Janet - don't worry, most years I've been months late with my planting and things have turned out OK. The trick is to make sure they're kept in a dark, cool place and they don't dry out.
Hehe, I think Spring can stay in March/April for me too rather than October.
Seed Parade - ah yes, but with a name like yours, you must be thinking about seeds for next year at least? ;)
Well yes, this is very true I suppose! :D Heh
I love hearing from you and welcome thoughtful conversations :) Comments aiming to link back and give credence to commercial websites will be composted!
