Spanish bluebells

That would probably work, fuchsia but I don't want to damage the leaves. I will wait a bit until something develops in the middle. For all I know there may be no alliums at all!

Well I had a go,but the bulbs are at least two foot deep in heavy clay and even though it's workable today, it's an impossible task and many are under shrubs so I've sliced the tops off with a hoe and I'll forget about them til next year.

The heaps of bulbs I disposed of last year must just have been the top layer.

I'll work on the alliumless patch first . I did wonder if they were up to something under the surface.

Thanks Dove.

Thought I was winning, but apparently not

My efforts at clearing a patch of ground have brought yet more bluebells to the surface. Do I need to get them out before they flower or can I just make sure they don't seed?

One problem is that I planted some alliums and at this stage it's hard to tell which is which

Any advice would be appreciated

Actually did some gardening today!!

Pruned back verb bon and valerian. It looks a bit more like a dormant garden rather than a wilderness. It's amazing the difference a few minutes makes.

Almost inspired to do some more tomorrow

A Valentine meal with who ?

Good looks and wit don't seem to come together very often  so perhaps dim lights might help me to make my selection. Thai food would be good. He must have dark hair and a nice bum but the wit of Stephen Fry.
