it’s that time of year again… the time when the persistent nip leaves the air, the sun starts lingering in the sky in the afternoons, and Callum catches the gardening bug.
this year we bought several different bulbs and some fresh soil from the gardening store in Saint-Hilaire-du-Harcouët; by planting the bulbs now, we should be able to see them flower in a few weeks or months. Some of them have already started to show signs of flowering, but it will be a while before they bloom.
we also have a variety of seeds left over from last year – mostly vegetables and herbs – that we have kept in sealed bags for his year. I’m hoping that they’ll still grow this spring if we plant them – who knows! It’s worth a try.
