Yesterday, in a sudden fit of enthusiasm, I planted some daffodil bulbs.

Yes, I know, it's rather late, and there's no way they'll do much this year, but who knows, next year they might.

How many? Oh, I didn't actually count. 25 kg of bulbs in an almost continuous layer.

(They'd been sitting around waiting for my tuit for way too long. In the end, it didn't take very long.)

I think there may be another 100 kilos of bulbs quietly sprouting in a dark cupboard in south Cambridgeshire. Someone really ought to do something about them ...

But yes, I do like daffodils - one of the joys about a British spring is the way these flowers joyously blast up into the world when everything else is still green. To see whole hillsides just covered with them is wonderful.

I assume they do well in Ireland too, but I'm not sure I've ever been there at the right time and place for any major displays.
