Spring Shopping on a Sunday










I finally bought some spring bulbs, at half price from Home Base.There are fourty Muscari Armeniacum, ten dwarf Toronto Tulips, ten dwarf Minnow Daffodils, fifteen Anemone Blanda Blue shades, and twenty five Chionodoxo Lucillae.



It was Half price, a bargain for five pounds. I got some Hyacinths for growing on indoors too. Every year I think I will try to grow some from bulbs. These were reduced to £2 each for 3 bulbs.



There are three Lavender coloured Hyacinth Ostara, and three Hyacinth Pink Pearl. These have been planted in two plastic boxes, the only thing I had shallow enough for the bulbs. There are special shallow pots you can buy for growing Hyacinths on. These plastic boxes are sat in the dark now waiting for some leaf growth.


I also bought a small potted plant in a silver pot. After being inspired by my earlier post about plants that remind you of Xmas. My friend in Scotland used to buy her Granny one of these plants every year. Its a Mexican native, and has a lovely legend attached to it!
