Happy Easter

I’m pleased with these. Last year the garden centre was selling pots of tulips or daffodils very cheaply, so I bought a pot with tulip snouts just showing. They flowered well, then I moved the pot beside the greenhouse. I did nothing to them at all except to remove the dead foliage, so they were outside through all the deluges, snow and frost we’ve had. And here they are flowering again, apparently thriving on neglect.
