My motherinlaw and I went to the Ellerslie Flower Show this year, for inspiration and were very enthused with lots of the stands and gardens we saw.
We managed to resist buying 500 daffodil bulbs, but we did by 80! I also bought some specialist bulbs from a grower outside Geraldine late last year, which arrived in the post a week or so ago. This weekend, we spent lots of time crawling around the garden and flowerbeds planting bulbs. It's an exercise in patience, because we won't see them till Spring. But such hope! that there will be a gorgeous display of beautiful bulbs to herald spring this year.
