Hyacinth Bulbs

Posted: 07/05/2012 at 13:43

I planted some hyacinths next to my front door which I received as a growing Xmas present and they flowered the following spring.  They are in a spot which gets baked in the sun and they are quite deep because I mulch the garden every year.  They always flower earlier than my other hyacinths.

Inka - When I saw your slug photo I thought it was a banana for a minute.  What an aptly named and horrible thing!!

Geoff - I always used to feel guilty about leaving various of our dogs at kennels before the holidays.  No sofa's to lie on for a few days!  Toby always used to return to the kennels who originally rescued him.  He remembered them and it was like a home from home.

I am still in Dubai at present.  I missed a connecting flight so have to spend a day at the airport.

My apple blossom is half open but this time last year I already had baby apples. 

I leave for the airport tomorrow afternoon.  Of course I am leaving my security guard and german shepherd on duty in my house   My dad once said that the only person who would bother to break into my house would be a book lover.  I have nothing else worth taking.  Miserable Paul at work spent twice as much on headphones than I did on my TV.  I've always said that money not spent on the garden is money wasted.

My toms are actually not as far ahead as they normally are.  In fact everything is behind.  I've just been checking my gardening diary and this year the apple blossom is about three weeks behind last year.  The cotoneaster was in full flower by 9th May last year but this year it is nowhere near flowering.

My tomatoes are about 10" high and looking good but they are still in the potting shed.  I would have liked to have done some gardening today but that wind was just too chilly.

I love your before and after photo's Figrat!  It's always great to look back and see what you have accomplished.

I can never bring myself to do a Chelsea chop.

Always good to have a book to read on holiday!  I'm taking Michael Crighton with me (hope he enjoys the trip).

I won't be able to mow the lawns before I go on holiday and they need cutting already!  What will they look like by the end of May??  I have a feeling that dad might have a go with the mower

When mum was still OK she once went over on her own and stopped over for a night at Singapore on the way!  We all wondered how she would get on but needn't have worried because they obviously knew how to look after a granny.
