    tulips protected from squirrels
    Three months on from fracturing my kneecap I’m back out in the garden – and it feels wonderful. I am being sensible(ish). I strapped on the kneebrace and put my mobile phone in my pocket. Anyway, two hours later I’ve planted several pots of tulips, some with wallflowers, and protected them from any snacking squirrels that may come this way. My large vintage hanging baskets actually look rather decorative covering the pots either side of the front door and I’ve used holly trimmings on the rest of the pots. The squirrels really don’t like the prickles.
