Evening all,  was looking around garden after small bit of rain and buzzing around was this in picture below what is it? about an inch large

Sitting on the old banana put on the tree stump for the butterflies but not seen them on there.

Been up to station later cleared away lots of the stones from on top of the raised bed which made it look a bit better and cleared it a bit for bulb planting somewhen

Tomsk it should be fine to plant the tulips and daff in a window box the rule normally are 3x there size deep ish, I have planted tulips in pots not that deep and been fine.

My mum got a bag of tulips from lidl the other day when she went out which is great -  I counted them the other day got 66 bulbs not bad that and a trip to lidl today got 5kg daffs of the train station garden for fiver which helps when such a large garden to plant up.

Also got some tulips and crocus in small bags for the garden here too. Lidl so good will count daffs later sometime

Well had a trip to Lidl as daff bulbs not there when checked the other day but no daffs then,  mum managed to pick up a large bag tulips for the station which was great from a different store as have a few near by but nothing else as all gone.

Offer on leaflet - large bag of daffs started this week from Thursday in shop near me, so off to lidl today as well and managed to get a bag or 2 of 5kg Narcissus/ daffs mix and yellow for a fiver a bag.

Great isn't it Stacey lots of daffs thanks for the letting me know on the other thread, the train station will be full of them just a lot of planting to do first all that digging will be knackering need it to rain first if not ground will be like concrete, also got a few hebes plants for the station cheap and then some bulbs - Tulips and Crocus for the garden and a few hebes as well - want some in the garden too.

Well Evening Forkers forgot to say
