Daffodils and ladybirds.
The daffs you see in the photos I planted inthe autumn last year. They have come into bloom today. I love white flowers, so pure white daffs seemed like a good choice, I love them. The one with the pink tinge is also beautiful. When I bought them I thought what have you done, pink daffodils, no not a good idea. But hey, I think they are pretty gorgeous. Got an opinion I would love to hear it.
Also saw a ladybird today, every gardeners friend.
Spent several hours at my parents today landscaping their garden. My Dad worked with me, he is 81. Watching him I suddenly realised how old he had got. My Dad has always been my rock, a strong man, a protective father. I did the heavy work today, he could not do it anymore. Thats fine, I am happy to do that, but I must say I drove home and felt a little sad.
