This year for the first time ever I decided to have a go at planting some bulbs and I have to say I have loved seeing them grow and they make me smile every time I look out my kitchen window. It's just that added bit of colour on a gloomy day. It also lets you know that spring is finally here. I am sounding so old.
The Daffodils were tiny and they lasted a long time. They looked lovely with the blue of the Hyacinths.
The crocuses had a lovely purple hue and the grass with them had a white stripe through the middle which looked stark against the green leaf. The colours in nature are just so fab.
All in all, I would TOTALLY recommend planting some bulbs. I planted mine in November 2015 and I planted them in layers. The bottom layer is made up of tulip bulbs and the higher layer's daffodils and crocuses, therefore I have things flowering at different times. Its a gift that keeps on giving and it literally took me one in afternoon in November. I brought all my bulbs from Ardardan Estate and they also stock my cards.
