Oh dear flumpy I do hope you do not have the flu. Sea-saw weather again in Bristol - degrees already and a duckpond on the kitchen patio. Forecast is rain for all day . My bulb delivery was delayed yesterday but just had an email to say it will arrive between 2 and 3 this afternoon. My six perennials from the Secret Gardening Club should come today too. I've put in my hearing aids so I can hear the delivery men at the door! My friend of the tiny garden has sent me pictures of his crocuses and hyacinths He is apologetic about them and sent me last year's pics for comparison as well!. But then he is a perfectionist. Actually i think the mild winter has messed up the bulbs somewhat. I have lots of seedling new snowdrops from the pollination efforts of the bees last year but they flowered earlier this year before pollinators were around. Here are inner city spring bulbs this year.
