Spring in a supermarket trolley.

Spring in a supermarket trolley.

I'm self-gifting again. We went into Waitrose this morning and they had the most lovely pick-me-up dispays for sale outside. After all the discussions about growing aconites recently, I thought I would have a 5th attempt (!) and try a different location in my plot. Especially as I have 2 flowers in the back border that have reappeared for the second year running, so there is hope yet.
The primroses were just to balance up the numbers....
Irresistible :-)

I like yellows in the spring. I hope they will cheer you up every spring, Anget.

Thank you all. I love these natural and simple flowers more and more the older I get.

They'll be a real treat for you Ange and hopefully for many years to come..

I hope so, too, Janey. Up until now not much luck but lots of hints and tips from SBG and others.

Thanks, Sheila.

I had a border of aconites in Willow Cottage, but one year they disappeared and I never saw them again! You got a bargain there Anget!

A lovely array of yellow spring flowering plants...Iā€™m betting you skipped round that supermarket after picking these up!!!!

Well, I did my food shopping first, Kate and then I popped back for these. I resisted the hellebores!

Rose, Most of mine don't make a reappearance after planting so I may be like you. Last year I said I wasn't going to buy anymore. So much for self-control.

Fingers crossed for a long and happy life this time!

Hope they do well for you.

They all look very healthy plants. The spring will soon be sprung

The spring is sprung
the grass is riz,
I wonder where the birdies is,
The birds on the wing,
But that's absurd,
The wings on the bird. Spike Milligan.

Thanks Yorks, Siris and Paul: I will send your 'positive vibes' out when I am planting them.
