Just because they are nice.
It is well and truly here. And many of the bulbs I planted last Autumn are pleasingly emerging.
Some old faithfuls are coming back.
Some new addition doing ok.
I love these little guys, have pots and pots of them now.
And the edible bits also looking OK. Strawberries are back…
And the fruit trees I put in have flowered and seem happy. I have high hopes for these this year.
Can’t wait for summer.
And there has been some sun.
And in response the garden is starting to get it’s act together. I planted hundreds (and that’s not an exaggeration) of bulbs last year, most of which I imagine have been feasted on by the local wildlife. Those that have made it through seem to be stirring.
And all inspired by this I invested in a bunch of flowers for the house too. It always feels extravagant to do this but I love them every time I look at them, which must make it worth the expense.
