wow they look good - are they all the same variety or different, I need to hurry up with cold frame  

That's just a few in a cold greenhouse, Gg....have some others in a coldframe. They are different varieties, & have  carefully labelled each one.

 SP seed sown as of this week, here in the Midlands. Germination usually takes between 7 & 21 days.....21 days being preferable as this would indicate temperatures being about right.

I would totally agree that wallflowers are an excellent plant to accompany tulips.....especially the deep red varieties.

I would just add that if you decide to keep chickens, please give a thought to getting ex-battery chickens....they are very cheap, will continue laying for you and after all, they do deserve some compassion.

I think it's a good sunset, KEF.....atmospheric & an enormous sun   Sunsets are not the easiest pics to capture.
