Sorry Paul, these pictures were meant for you of course but I'm so used to discuss bulb vases with Andy that I made a little mistake.
No doubt Andy will enjoy them as well.
Thanks Christine, every time we set up bulbs it's a surprise for us well what comes out of it!

christine - I wud not have offended you deliberately -  I have enjoyed immensely our few exchanges on the GMB, and as you obviously know shed loads more about glass than me, then I apologise for my rather sharp - and sometimes slightly caustic sense of humour.   Apparently people who meet me often don't know if I am joking or not.
I look forward to many more of your helpful answers to my glass queries.   Hope we are still friends. :kissy:
I though for a moment Christine you were suggesting that Patricia looked better upside down ;)
thanks to Patricia for the pics of bulbs and flowers  -  very educational to see the vase sizes and length of root systems.    I seem to remember from my own days when I took some interest in propogation and gardening etc., that bulbs are either geo-tropic or photo-tropic   i.e. whatever position you try to grow them in relation to light or the ground  -  they will always be influenced by their natural tendencies,  cud this be the reason why Patricia had a high failure rate with the upside down ones recently.
I don't speak as an expert in anything - I've given up  -  its too wearing.          Actually, I've almost forgotten how this thread started out  -  we have deviated so much!
cheers        Paul S.

Christine  -  I scoured the garden  -  having seen violets in recent days, but guess the slugs must have eaten them all, but one.     Have added some primulas (almost primroses) and added the one violet  -  so I hope these remind you of the wonderful gifts from your father.         cheers      Paul S.
