The cheeky Robin this morning had worked out how to hover in front of the fatballs and was clinging on for a high fat snack. I was in bed untill three pm recovering from the night shifts.A Cat photo this one..
A Tulip plant with gorgeous colours of Burgundy and Green.It reminds me of an ancient Maori warrior covered in tribal tattoos. On the left border three Tulips have been demolished flower bud and all by slugs.they are loving those so they stay.The other Tulips are pretty much intact and close to flowering.
Tulip Tease. One of the Red Tulips gives us a quick flash of the developing flower encased in the green leaves.The flowers are itching to burst out of the leaves and light up the borders.
On the Kitchen windowsill outside the Spring bulbs continue to develop, nearly flowering. Yellow flowers and one blue one. I planted Chionodoxa and Narcissus in December. I have just put my paraffin heater back into the cold frame.The cabbages are growing on with roots all the way to the bottom of the three inch pots. Twelve Strawberry plants are growing on ready to be planted into the Victorian style polythene planter. The warm days last week lulled me into spring mode.It has been freezing the past three nights, with below freezing temperatures.It also rained and snowed briefly. The allotment will be sodden again.I will have to push back the planting dates as the clay soil is waterlogged and cold.Maybe near the end of April.. Days off to come, so hopefully lots to post over the next four days.I need another coffee :)
