I have a long strip of them in the front garden. They are in a long narrow bed that separates the driveway from the front garden path. It is affectionately named by me as the Tulip Walk.
I plan to dig the bulbs up once the floral display is over & the leaves start dying down. I shall keep them in a safe place for planting again later in the year. The space I gain will be filled with some of the flower seedlings currently residing in the greenhouse.
After my visit to Chester on Saturday I visited Morrison's on the way back. I needed a bit of shopping but the main purpose was to buy this.
jo-thegoodlife . It was only £3. Anyway I left Mike to the less important stuff of food shopping & skipped off to find the garden section. I soon found & pounced on my bug house. It is now on a section of fence by the wildlife pond. There is a honeysuckle plant to the left of it which I hope to train around it.
As it was such a lovely day Mike & I sat in the garden for a bit with gin & tonic. It was lovely way to spend an hour until the sun went behind a cloud & it got chilly. The bumble bees were flying around & we also spotted a couple of butterfly's. I cant tell you how much Mike laughed at my attempt to take a photo of this little character. Each time I crept up on the butterfly to take a photo it flew off the opposite side.
