I decided that yesterday would be a good day to plant some daffodils and crocuses (crocii?) in our front garden so we went to Home Depot and got all the stuff. We got home and started to try to dig some holes for the bulbs. Unfortunately under the innocent looking mulch is rock solid clay. I managed to get the holes dug and the bulbs planted but it wasn't as fun as I'd hoped because the kids couldn't dig at all - it might as well have been solid rock! They did enjoy putting the bulbs in the holes and piling chunks of clay back on top of them.
Hopefully we'll have some flowers in the spring but I won't be surprised if they can't grow in the clay.
Aoife had fun picking up the bulbs I had arranged in the garden and putting them back into the bag.
