I thought tea bags had some sort of plasticy stuff in them to stop the bag disintegrating when boiling water was poured on them. I don't bother composting them any more.

Do you have the red lily in Briton/Scotland?

I don't really know the best answer, but I leave mine. I suppose, if you aren't happy with where they are, you could pot them up and grow them on a bit and replant them.

Pouring today too. Our picnic was cancelled. Not warm either, not what you expect in SW France.

Lovely pics. Hyacinths are beautiful together, sprig of apple blossom could hardly be more perfect and the tulip is almost like a lovely rose. Spring flowers are so pretty.
