Autumn surprise!


A new pink flower

I think the waterlily bulb I planted last month has germinated. This was not all what I expected – rather I thought it would be a year before I saw it. But this bodes well for the other bulbs I’ve planted (tulip and daffodil). It might even galvanise me into action so that I get the rest of the planting done!

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.

  1. It shows all the fruits of your labor. This Autumn weather has done wonders for your garden. It will be exciting to see what your garden looks like next year with all the new bulbs that you have planted this year.Happy gardening!

  2. I love garden surprises of the flower variety! I’m waiting for this ridiculous heat wave to pass so that my bulbs aren’t confused. Given our zone we usually plant in November. The problem with that is all the other things to do that time of year. I will persevere, however, as you are doing the same.

  3. Congrats and good luck.
