I will attempt to answer that question very simply: A lot.

I am starting to recover from my bout of sickness now, and so I had the itch to get outside today, even though it was ridiculously cold (typically, I’ve been ill through the best of the weather of late. Glorious Sunshine plus Sick Ria equals Sad Face.)



So my special offer from Thompson & Morgan arrived in the post yesterday, all neatly packed in little boxes and well labelled. I must admit that I have so little space preparedĀ for them, I wonder what I’m going to do. I had considered finishing our ‘tyre garden’ at the bottom of the orchard and using them to plant the bulbs in, along with a lot of daffodils for some lovely colour in Springtime. We’ll see if the lurgy stays with me today, but if I feel better later on I may go investigate and update you all. Until then, beechams and chicken soup!
