My pretty garden bulbs

Look at what have opened today!

Usually the iris open before the crocus but for some reason the crocus were first. Actually, when I think about it, the snowdrops were first. Followed by a few primula. The iris were definitely not open yesterday as I was chatting with a neighbour about the crocus in my garden when I came home from work at lunch time yesterday.  Tony will be delighted when he comes home as we were beginning to think that naughty Mr Squirrel had pinched them all.  I keep finding walnuts where that pesky squirrel has been burying them in my plantpots.  The softpots have been outside all winter. We have had some awful weather but they have given a little hint of colour in the garden.  I plan to make some bigger ones as soon as the weather warms up.


  1. So nice to see a bit of colour isn't it.

  2. The first colour in spring is so welcome.

    1. It really lifts my spirits to know that winter is on its way out.

    1. I am not speaking too soon. Next week looks like being horrendous

  4. We usually have loads of crocus but have hardly any this year. I think the squirrels have had them. We find peanuts buried in the garden. It is a shame as I love the crocus.
