Tete A Tete


Tete A Tete

These are coming out much faster than the crocus this year. Very strange...never had this happen before. Not a single crocus out in my garden yet, but quite a few of these beauties peeping out.

I do love these cheery little plants.......our Crocus have been very slow, the tulips will be out sooner than the crocus...

Hmm..it must be the lack of cold earlier in the winter.

only a couple of mine out, crocus out in borders and snowdrops of course. Crocus in the front grass are later every year but even they are beginning to show now. Think maybe the mole has dug underneath and lowered the daffs which of course will make them later getting through the soil. Must get out and have a rose chopping session, they are so far forward with it being so mild. In fact one of them has not stopped flowering all winter. Weird weather.

Yes, one of my Graham Thomas and my Warm welcome have kept struggling on too Mum. I think thats partly the relatively mild winter, but also partly down to the very late cold summer too. They never really flowered.

They are perfect for lifting the spirits and look really pretty.

Heralding the spring....just what we need Karen, lovely! I have tête-à-têtes in flower too in my tubs....:)) X

All my Tete a Tete started flowering a couple of weeks ago, along with the Tommie Crocuses, but the taller Daff, still in bud, wonder if it's because the T a T are more sheltered being closer to the ground?

Probably just a later variety Siris. I have loads of narcissus just starting to show above soil.

You are probably right, though what variety I have no idea, just got shifted around whilst moving soil/plants to other locations. The T a T s free gifts with other bulbs from one of the big suppliers, as you say, so cheery.
