My creative space...

Has, at last, been all about the garden.  I have been planting bulbs in the hope that come the spring I am blessed with glorious colour again.

I have spent many hours scouring catalogues and websites and put together three schemes for some tulip beds.  I bought all my bulbs from here, for the first time and it comes highly recommended.

No2 did the digging (and copious amounts of moaning about it, I might add) and so, for the first time, I have planted my tulips in trenches.

If my garden looked anywhere near as beautiful as this one, I will be in green-fingered heaven next year.

I had some very enthusiastic helpers as well as the more begrudging one too.  Ignore the tin can, if you don't mind.  I have unearthed all manner of debris from party of the year outside...

Right, I'm off for a soak in the bath.  My fingernails are disgusting and my shoulders are aching from the bending and digging.

More creative spaces here.


  1. Love the last photos of the hens looking over the can of beer ;-)
    Love those trenches, I'm sure it'll look beautiful next year!

  2. Your garden is going to be glorious! And nice to get those last party bits out--sigh.
