I know that I had posted picture of my crocuses a little while ago, but now the big boys have just emerged, the daffodils, the tulips and the hyacinths up here in Blandford. I am very happy to share my new pictures, this year I don’t seem have many, in terms of my daffodils. This fall I will dig them up and separate the bulbs and perhaps next year, I will be luckier with more blooms. I can only think that the huge chipmunk population in my yard is to blame for the near absence of tulips and hyacinths, this year. Last year I took the time to dig up and separate the tulips and hyacinth bulbs and the iris rhizomes, so I can only attribute very hungry chipmunks because I mulched as well before winter. I have said it before, gardening is never boring, there is always a development that crops up, could be good or it could be bad, but it is always different and therein lies the challenge which I like so much.
