I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one that gets excited about gardening, but I am 100% sure that my allotment neighbours might think I’m a little bit crazy!
Off I cycled up the allotment yesterday morning to spend the day photographing products for our new shop when upon entering my gate I noticed some colourful little blooms in my trough. The tulips have started to bloom! I couldn’t quite conceal my excitement and decided that this special occasion called for a little tulip dance and song, only to later notice that I wasn’t alone on my allotment site. Oh well, you only live once after all and I’ve been waiting for these tulips to bloom for ages!
I really can’t wait until they are all fully in bloom though, it’s going to look so beautiful and the bees are going to love them. I really do need to make some sort of structure to go around the outside of my trough, it was very windy yesterday and I was worried that once the tulips grow taller they might be in trouble of snapping in the wind. I am so chuffed that I decided to fill the trough with tulips instead of tomatoes, even though the blooms will only last for a few weeks it is going to look pretty and sure makes me happy.
