My gardening methods are pretty haphazard – but somewhere in amongst the chaos there is usually a plan of sorts. When I buy and plant bulbs in the autumn I immediately forget what I have planted where. So it comes as a lovely surprise when a border full of bulbs all bloom together to give the picture I had in my head at the time of planting. I don’t know about you but at this time of year the pink part of the colour wheel seems a little out of place. When there is lots of fresh green foliage beginning to show – there is nothing nicer in my mind than a selection of yellows and creams to go with it.
In the front garden border I planted yellow and cream tulips together with yellow and cream narcissus. The photos don’t do the border justice as we have had a heavy shower of rain this morning that flattened it all – nevertheless it is looking pretty and fresh and good to look at.
So although my memory fails me (I have no ideas where I planted the dozens of tulips I bought) – it will come as another surprise when they all start to emerge – so maybe a bit of chaos is a good thing – even though at times I wish I was a little more organised! Below is a collage of some of the other daffodils in the garden – captured on film before they all go over.
Thank you for all your good wishes on my last post – I am happy to report I am back to full strength and anxious to put the nasty virus behind me and get on with living life to the full once more.
Have a great weekend and happy gardening! My first walk around the village in three weeks today and noticing the hedgerows are greening up and celandine, daisy, dandelion and wild violets are gracing the verges. Nature does it best!
