Hello folks - Toad in the Hole has gone down the hatch
Now for my confession .... I went to the GC in my lunch half-hour (and a little bit) armed with my voucher and stood and gazed at the serried ranks of bulbs.
Quite quickly I decided on species tulips, First I picked up a bag of Little Beauty - pink stars with blue and white centres; then I put them down because I saw the gorgeous gold of the Praestans Shogun with the lovely dark stamens, those were the ones for me, and then I saw the pink and whie Ancilla ..... I stood for ages contemplating, until I decided - the Praestans Shoguns were to be mine!
Where am I going to plant them? I asked myself as I walked towards the checkout. There's no room on The Shady Bank at the moment, and I've not dug the border in the front garden yet .... they'll have to go in a pot.
BUT ............... I've already filled all my nice pots with crocus, hyacinths, tulips, narcissus, muscari and violas .... I turned around and walked towards the terracotta bulb bowls - £4.49 each
OR 3 for £10!!!
What's a girl to do? That was too good a bargain to miss wasn't it?
Only one thing for it ... back I went to the bulbs and picked up the Little Beauties and the Ancillas as well .... 3 bowls and 3 packs of bulbs
Just as well I also had £7.50 in vouchers as well wasn't it?
