I was at my job at UAl Friday before last and when i walked out for a spot of air during the morning. I spotted a couple of gardeners digging out all the tulips from the church garden next door. As I approached to enquire if they were going to be thrown away, one of them said “how many would you like?” as if he had read my mind!! I explained about my school gardening job, and the answer to his question was as many as I could carry on my bicycle!!
Some broke off in transport, the others all got planted at the school, as it is lovely and wet at the moment, and many of them still had unopened flowers. They will all come up again this time next year. What a great find.
