SHOPPING AT THE NURSERY (ナーセリーでお買い物)

Saturday afternoon, we went to a nursery in the west part of Fukuoka City.  It's 45 minutes drive.  We always buy tulip bulbs in this nursery in late autumn.

At the entrance, succulents were planted in an engine space of a car. The shop was filled with vivid colors of cyclamen flowers and Christmas garden goods.  A large Santa Claus and a Snow Man were waiting to be bought.  Celosia candle cakes looked so beautiful, but not so delicious.  There were also a lot of iron goods for gardening, and I found and bought iron hose guide with frog on it. My wife bought a green tin flower pot.

Small snow mans

Celosia candle cakes


Frog hose guard guides

Flower pots etc.

We determined that we will plant yellow and orange tulips in the potager this time, and bought large (and a little bit expensive) ones because tulips in the last spring flowered not so good maybe due to its small size and mold.

    I really enjoy buying tulip bulbs - I have started planting mine today. I like the frog hose guides and they look at home in your garden already. It sounds like a successful garden centre visit.
    Best wishes and enjoy the bulb planting!
