Backyard bulbs

Postby Jim » Mon Aug 07, 2006 1:26 pm

All but two of the daffodils are out, and there are still many more jonquils on the way too. Next year I think I'll take up Ann's practice of bringing some inside for a few days - the scent is amazing outside, I'm sure it'd be 10 times more pungent indoors. I would have done it this year, but the pots are a little too large to bring inside :shock:
The tulips have a few buds coming up too! Very exciting.

Lovely daffs. :D

I like the idea of bringing them inside for the scent. Hadn't thought of that. I'll have to suggest to the missus that we pot some up and do just that in future. :)

Thanks for all the kind words. When I said to bring them inside for the scent, I meant the jonquils Pokie. They do have a much stronger olfactory impact than the daffodils. I'll have to plant two or three bulbs in smaller pots for some indoor time next year.

I like your style, James. Already justifying why you need to buy more bulbs next season! :lol: Is that a rosemary to the right?
