Two new sights greeted me this morning, my lovely tulips bought on Wednesday had drooped into this I have managed to salvage something after chopping some off the stalks and using a couple of rubber bands. They looked this morning like I felt yesterday. If you have seen that old Ian Carmichael film “Privates Progress” […]
