Temptation came to my house last month in the form of an email offering me half price spring (and autumn) bulbs at one of my favourite garden centres. As my daughter is particularly keen for us to have flowers, flowers and more flowers, it was a temptation I couldn’t resist. Especially as she has such good taste!
At the garden centre, they sell fish for ponds and aquaria, too – and to entertain the children there is a pool where they can feed koi. So, in spite of the excitement over collecting the bulbs, we stopped first there.
Then with money off vouchers as well as the original 50% discount we obtained the following bulbs for £4.99!
Now, the question is: where in the garden are we going to put them?
