• A Satisfying Sight

    There’s always a time around Christmas when I wonder what possessed me to buy so many bulbs – and when I’m going to finish planting them. Somehow I managed to get them all in this year and although planting them couldn’t always be described as ‘fun’ – it’s lovely to see all my pots filled and bulbs starting to show. This is the time of year when friends ask me ‘is it too late to plant bulbs?’ and I generally reply that bulbs are more likely to flower in the ground than in a paper bag.
