Not long before our new family member arrived, we took a family walk over to the local garden centre. As it was just after Easter there were several very good reductions on spring bulbs. Hubby helped the children each pick a £1 pot of Tulips for me to enjoy on the lounge windowsill.
I came home from hospital just in time to catch them in full bloom. They were beautiful and brought a smile to my face when ever I past them.
This morning though they had definitely past their best. A quick scan of advice on Pinterest told me to remove the flowers and allow the leaves and stems to die back naturally. Hopefully this means that I will get to enjoy their beautiful colours again next year, and if I'm very lucky the bulbs may even split to create even more baby tulips to enjoy.

P.S - My hospital appointment today went very well and I'm cleared to resume daily life. In the promise I take things slowly of course.
