The earth laughs in flowers

The title of this post is a quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson and we agree with his sentiment wholeheartedley.  Now let's hope that OUR bit of earth  has a giggling fit come Spring because our bulbs are in!  Smiley, scented narcissi, some oh-so-amazing tulips (including an absolutely enormous parrot!), drumstick alliums and magical snakeshead fritilaria are amongst our chosen ones.  Good job we're planning our first open day when they flower so you can all come and enjoy them!  Now, how may sleeps until Spring?...
