My English Garden - May 2013


My English cottage garden has had a wonderful show of tulips during the last week. It's so wonderful to watch them opening up every day when the sun comes out!


Each year I lift some of the bulbs and dry them off. I usually pick a hot, dry day in summer and let the bulbs have a good baking.


Once they are dry, I rub off the soil and store them until the Autumn when I plant them out again, usually haphazardly. I like to see where they come up, mixing the colours as I go.


Just love to count how many of each colour I have each year.


...but I always buy new ones, usual ten at a time. That guarantees that at least some of them will come true. I put the new ones in a tub by the back door to the cottage so I can see them from the kitchen window.

The cowslips are pretty too, aren't they!


The primroses and primulas are mainly over now but there is still a bit of colour visible.


What a joy my Spring garden is. It delights all the senses.

Have a good week everyone.
