Well eventually most of the daffodils found their way into the ground although in some places it was quite wet. This afternoon I eventually managed to coerce  Johnny into helping to plant the bag of bulbs that have been waiting for I'm sure nearly six weeks. Today we planted along the lane leading to the stables and the kitchen garden. Will have to twist Johnny's arm to plant the rest as it takes a lot less time when someone digs the hole and me popping in the bulb and filling in still have about a quarter of a sack to plant.

This photo is for Jacinta as Jeremy our heron was by the edge of the pond however there's no Koi for him here.

cloncaw i use a crowbar to make the hole in the ground to plant bulbs. i make a hole and put a small bit of compost in the bottom of the hole and add bulb and cover with soil or compost.its alot quicker then digging holes.

Your garden will look stately in spring with so many daffodils. Daffodils are the sign of a true gardener, I always think, not some fair weather fanatic!

That will be a real cheery sight in Spring! "All at once I saw a cloud a host of golden daffodils"!

lovely picture, I think the herron is such a lovely bird. We have them nest nearby and see them daily 'fishing' at the water's edge.
