If I had a brain I'd be dangerous!
If I had a brain I would have known that those tulips which, on the pack, said they were "an unusual colour combination" which looked dull and uninteresting (basically, beige with pinkish beige) would be - mega-boring and - well, beige!
And when I planted another trough with tulips - some cream am some purple, and the cream ones, described as 10" but were actually 15" which dwarfed the purple ones, instead of just moaning about it I should instantly have seen that all I had to do was . . . . . . . . . . . turn the trough around so the cream ones were at the back! Simples. (it took me a couple of days to work that one out. 'nuff said!)
And when I said I could manage with a smaller greenhouse because my new garden is a lot smaller than before, I should have known that I would quickly run out of space for seedlings, over-wintered plants etc.
And when I said that, with the new-to-us house with a small garden would be fine - I was self-delusional.
If only I wasn't a scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz, I would have had half a brain and would have known these things.
Please tell me I'm not alone!
