Hooray, the first of my bulbs to emerge through the soil. Smaller than my little finger, I’m not entirely sure which of these hyacinth bulbs it is so just as well I like surprises!
The rest of my bulbs were planted at the end of November. Time will tell if my paper bag scribble will help me identify what’s what. This year’s planting was a bit like painting by numbers so fingers crossed for a beautiful rainbow result and not a techni-colour nightmare.
Elsewhere on the plot post-snow survival is evident in various shades of green, yellow and brown.
