But you always have a 'whale' of a time when you're out David...

Harmony's nice too fidget. It was me that didn't like KH. It's a horrid combination of yellow and lavender....yuck 

A nice row of them in identical terracotta pots is a good way to have them, or down a set of steps

Welcome freewillow.

The reticulata ones are lovely -  a bit different from just crocus etc at that time of year. I always have them in pots. The purples are a good rich colour and the flowers are so neat and sharp, like the Chrysographes Irises. Cheap to buy and an instant hit of joy at the end of the winter 

Dry for now Lesley..but a bit overcast and chilly, not the sunny weather we had at the weekend

KEF -  that's worthy of Verd 

The dwarf Irises are lovely. I've had Pauline before and have Purple Gem here. Would like D.S.Dijt and one of the white ones for next year. Hate Katherine Hodgkin...too wishy washy

Aah of course nut, but j10/jaz/Lord Lucan/Shergar was quite pleasant unlike so many, so we can give him/her that one 

When is the best time to plant out the varying bulbs?

Hyacinths like it warm though don't they? 

I managed to get them all out the bag Caral - took a while though! I planted them all in little pots and I'll put them in the ground soon. The only reason I found them was I noticed all this growth in the pot and couldn't think what it could be.

When a flower appeared it dawned on me...

I'd been a bit busy. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Can't have any of the top cake Ggirl - I ate it all 

You've been very busy as always. 

Lesley - precipitating.......
