Fellow gardener and bush walker N offered the following:
‘The spring is sprung, the grass is riz
I wonder where the boidie is.
They say the boidie’s on the wing
But that’s absoid. The wing is on the bird.’
N went on to say: ‘I recall last year at the RTBG that the almond tree flowered in the middle of the month to be shortly followed by the apricot. So imagine my surprise when this week the first tulip made an appearance at ours. The tulip came from the RTBG but I am not sure of the variety as there was no tag but we’ve 5 buds this time around so my decision to leave it to its own devices has paid dividends.’
And then there was blossom blossoming as well at N’s place – and this photo was taken in mid-July!
Significant change is on the way with new growth in our gardens.
