Tulip BulbBusy busy busy. Where does the time go? Is that enough of an excuse for not posting for a couple of days?

Well, it looks like I was wrong about this being mid-winter! Spring has sprung. Bulbs are visibly sprouting and growing taller each day. Isn’t it amazing what four days of mild weather can do?

I can see from a few other blogs and websites that the early flowers like snowdrops are in bloom in the south of the country. I generally think we are about two to three weeks behind in the north at this time of year so perhaps if the weather stays above freezing we could be seeing the first spring flowers in the next couple of weeks. Won’t that be nice!

    I’ve noticed how much bulbs on the plot have sprouted in just a few days.
    I’ve seen reports of snowdrops, crocus and even daffodils in flower.
    As you say it’s nice to see spring bulbs, especially this year after what has seemed a long winter.

  2. I’m sure I’ve seen pictures of blooming early spring flowers in the deep south, so I reckon it’s only a matter of time before the wave works its way this far north!
