Potting up time

We've been dodging showers and looking forward to Spring this weekend as J got busy planting up the bulbs I bought earlier in the year. So into our pots went the beautiful whites and yellows of Narcissus Snow Baby, Sweet Smiles, Twinkling Yellow, Moonlight Sensation and Baby Boomer with the mix of pinks and purples from Tulips Hemisphere, China Town and African King plus a little orange pop of the crocus Orange Monarch. A little pot of last year's Crocus Joan of Arc' and Narcissus Tete a Tete joined them. The Alliums Nectaroscordum and Atropurpureum went into the ground to mix with our roses, wallflowers and verbena bonariensis.

The bulbs arrived wrapped in paper and cardboard - a wonderful plastic free delivery from H.W.Hyde's.

And are now nestled in peat free compost in pots outside our front door just waiting for Spring. Happy thoughts!
