The daffs are nearly over but the tulips have arrived to keep the hyacinths happy.  And here and there a cheerful anemone.

You too, Flumpy.  splendid day for gardening in Bristol today and no cooking to do tomorrow as I am going to son no3 for Mothers' day lunch.  Do not do any prodding with a fork in wellies - change into stout boots for that!

Lovely day for gardening in Bristol so I have planted more King Edward potatoes and divided lots of primulas which have been amazing this year.  still more to do  after lunch.  I divided up my big clump of chionodoxa too so should have more of them next spring. I will do the same with the puschkinia next week.  Lots of plants for free!  Once the patio picnic table is cleared of pots of cuttings I will start covering it with plants for the Botanic Garden sale at Easter to make their funds some money.

Rain has stopped at last so I went out for a breath of fresh air in my garden and took some pictures.

Yes I buy new bulbs each year from Bloms Bulbs whom I find have the biggest bulbs.  Then i plant them out in the garden when I need the pots for summer bedding, so I have lots more coming into flower now in the borders.  The ones for early indoor flowering I had are almost ready to come out of their pots and be planted in the garden too.  I am a bit of a hyacinth freak
