Hello forkers and will be off to bed soon tired now

Went on a trip to hilliers GC today got to go to a different one to usual place, got a trolley and filled it with wet - got rained on slippery to handle heavy bags of compost and lawn dressing both 3 for 2 heavy to push around and a few plants in another trolley

Managed to get my free bulbs from garden mag offer from other GC- cyclamen coum pink before offer ends

Later in garden planted out the red tulips and some cyclamen winter ones - plants red pink and white and the corms and lots of plugs of primrose sunshine and covered with more bark - left over half bag from a few years ago still nice and bright now terracotta colour


 And after
