Got all my daffs and alliums planted yesterday, today its the pots of tulips I will be tackling. Made a slightly longer job by the fact that I have to empty out the summer annuals first. I have gone for one of the Sarah Raven tulip collections this year. i fancied a change from my normal combinations, and by the time I had worked out that it was not only colours I had to match up, but also heights and flowering times, I decided to pay the premium and have someone do that bit for me.
Felt good to be back in the garden again - my fingernails have now returned to their usual mucky state - they had started to look like a normal person's fingers .
Mr Chicky is soldiering on, but very tired. Baby steps, baby steps.
Hope the a&e dash sorted out problems for niece Verdun, and that the rest of her recovery is "uneventful" and speedy.
