Glory of the Snow

10 March 2010 18:26:34


I didn't do much gardening today despite the great weather.

Hey, you realise of course that this is our summer so we should all enjoy it while it lasts :)

I planted a few trays of seeds - 1 Petunia and 2 trays of Coleus.

But I noticed that the first of my little Glory of the Snow bulbs (Chionodoxa) has flowered. Isn't it dinky?

It is a lovely colour,  is it in the sun all day ??

I'm not surprised you can't remember where you put them, Fran & Fraoch, they are very small.

Yes, full sun all day, Clara.
