This week I am seeking 'Shelter from the Storm' and finding lots of flowers including Crocus, Galanthus and Narcissus.

You are ahead of ours here - but your Craigton Chorister is the first to flower this year (just opening now). I was unable to give the first monsoon on September 1 again this year - potting had only just started. The later watering is likely responsible for us being behind. Nice to have the first flowers of the season (not counting the autumn ones).
Until mine get properly under way, I will be enjoying yours!

Anne, I fall in love with these wee beauties every year

Because I was working on building the numbers up all of our Craigton Chorister are in pots where they are still in tight bud, a while away from flowering,  however we have plenty other clones that are in both pots and the sand beds and the flowering of those in the sand is always way ahead.

I've been getting caught up on bulb logs and just found out Molly died.  I'm sorry.  Such a pretty girl but I'm sure you and Maggie loved her for her personality.  Do you plan to get another dog since I believe you are now dog less?

Thank you Jan, we miss Molly deeply and would love to get another but we have to wait until  we find a suitable rescue dog preferably a middle aged westie bitch.

In this Bulb Log I find myself in the bulb house looking at the sand beds showing what is flowering now and every month except August  - plus notes on the cultivation methods.

I am unfamiliar with Tropaeolum.  Is the one covering so much area in the frit house just one plant?
