Random ramblings from the cluttered brain of a Brit ex-pat North Devonian trying to keep cool in the summers and warm in the winters of The Great White North.

Same Place Last Year
Last year, I was so excited to see my new daffodil bulbs sprouting on 27 March that I just had to get out there and take a picture. Click to enlarge or you might miss them... they're pretty teeny. The chicken mesh was to discourage the tree rats from making dinner out of the newly planted bulbs. Even the most musclebound and determined tree rat can't move that many bricks.
Oops, a little snowfall on 8 April slowed the growth down a bit, but it soon melted.
By 20 April, the sprouts were a bit bigger and greener, and it was safe to roll up the chicken wire.
By 27 April, I was getting really excited... I could see the flower buds almost ready to pop!
And by 8 May.... all in bloom!
That was last year.
The same garden this year.....
It might be August quite a while before we see any daffodils in 2008.
