At the Garden Centre

It’s still dark all day long but yesterday I whizzed up to the garden centre. I wanted to pick up my January card offer: 50 litres of compost at half price. Goodness, it was heavy to get in and out of the car! Lucky I have so much experience in how to tip these things about without actually picking them up. The offers for regular customers are of course intended to lure you to buy something else as well; a very successful ploy as I couldn’t resist pots of hyacinths on BOGOF. There were other pretty sights, like these primroses.

I didn’t look at the price tags, for fear of fainting from shock. Luckily my garden is already full of primroses, waiting for spring. One of these containers would make a nice present for someone, wouldn’t it?
