Term 3 2012 – Daffodils and bluebells

Our 650 painstakingly planted bulbs have put on a beautiful show for us this term. We put them in just over 2 years ago (April 2010), and really by about bulb 500 (or perhaps well before that) I think we were wondering why we were spending quite so much of our time crawling on hands and knees around the orchard. Anyway, the reason is now blooming beautifully all over the orchard.

The last 2 years has seen daffodils flower first and then fade away and the bluebells were later. This year (and i have no idea why) they have both flowered together. Or at least overlapped, so the sea of yellow and blue has been lovely.
