In the nick of time


Today is the last day of autumn. Winter arrives tomorrow (somehow?!) bringing some heavy rain for a few days. Harper and I ducked into the nursery this morning, grabbed some very late fistfuls of bulbs and with some digging, and measuring and fertilising we have them in. Phew.

Hopefully we see some daffodils, bluebells and tulips popping their heads up in a few weeks. It’s late, but we might just get there.


How late am I with my bulbs? Too late?

    Fingers crossed!

    My hubby grew up in a small beef farm in the highlands of Victoria and his parents planted hundreds of bulbs every year, all different colours. The photos are quite something, I only wish I witnessed them myself.

    I just propagated 20 hydrangeas and I think i have cut them too short, arhhhh. This gardening thing is hard work,hey ?!

    I planted a dozen daffys on Thursday, our poor vegie patch looks so barren in the winter. Hutch thinks I’m silly because we’re moving out of this house in a couple of months, but I thought the new tenants might enjoy a splash of colour. Hope they’re ok, they had started sprouting a little bit, fingers crossed!


  1. […] And the very BEST bit? I actually have a tulip coming up. Yes! It wasn’t too late when I planted them at the very end of May. I can’t tell you how pleased I am about it. It will be the most […]
