Oh dear, so cold. I think it will be indoor gardening today. Our post was very late yesterday and so at 5o.clock in the middle of preparing supper for my guest I found myself opening up "Live Plants". Had to wait till this morning to see what the bulbs were - 40 each of sparaxis, allium owstrowskianum,60 brodiaea, 70 oxalis, 60 allium moly, and 30 acidanthera. No doubt a sales bargain I could not resist. Well, the ground is well watered again after last night's rain so, all I need is a bit higher temperature and two or three dry days. In the meantime any that are showing signs of sprouting will go into pots. Some more daffs are going over now so will plant those out in the garden and free up their pots.
