The bulbs in the little tin bath that I planted up in the winter has just about reached it’s peak now, with I think, all the bulbs flowering.
They started flowering at the beginning of March.
All the crocus were free with the half price Iris.
The blue Iris are a beautiful colour, but they were supposed to be purple Pauline!
I kept waiting for a purple one to appear….
and at last, we have a few purples!
Then some of the yellow crocus opened up lilac.
The large leaves are from some tulips that somehow got left behind when I cleared the bath out last year.
So here we have it, I think all the bulbs are flowering now.
A few days later though, we had more purple Paulines than anything else, ah well, we got there in the end!
I decided in the end that it didn’t matter what colour the bulbs came up, they all looked lovely together and really brighten up a dull day. When they have finished flowering, I will move them and plant them on the side of the ditch into the woodland where they can hopefully create a spring carpet of colour in the years to come.
Wishing you and your families a very Happy Easter.
