I nipped into a generic "garden centre" on my way home yesterday while idly playing the "what the devil do you buy someone who already has lived so long they've got three of everything" game.
Well while there somehow, and I honestly have no idea how: I think I sneezed or something, a pack of heavily reduced tete-a-tete dwarf daffodils fell in my shopping basket.
They would look fantastic in a little pot on the coffee table (amongst the tissues, machine mart catalogue and my old car radio that he hasn't gotten around to moving yet) but .... could I actually do that? These bulbs are already in flower this season so would I be able to pot them up, feed and generally care for them and wait for them to die down naturally before preparing them for next year. Or would I need to start with "fresh" bulbs?
Any who.... here's a much needed hint of spring to warm us up!
