Good morning, its rather windy and due to get windier. Not the best day to dig out a pond but it has to be a weekend as I need hubsters assistance. First I'm off to B&Q for sand, stone, compost and to peruse their usually rather good reduced plant section. Enjoy your day everyone 😊

They got a bit bashed by the winds last week but they seem to have recovered. Actually these aren't peppermint apart from 1 I can see. These are Lady Jane.

I never know how tulips will do here. The springs are unpredictable, but I'm willing to pot some of these beauties up. They are gorgeous 💓

Opening, the outside is pretty but inside is even better when they fully open.

I remember from last year that these seemed to take ages to fully open, but they were worth the wait. There's tiny monster geranium again too.

They are so pretty. Great name too but I wouldn’t have associated it with the purple of this beauty 🤔

Thank the stars today's over, it started badly when I discovered all my uniforms still wet in the washing machine (husband forgot he offered to dry them), its been one thing after another today. Time for a wine I think.

@DeborahBanks Pots are a good idea. I've put a combo in a big pot. I'm going to do another pot for the black parrot and orange 'Ballerina' tulips 😁🧡🖤
