I was so pleased to find the bulbs all coming through when I cleared the ivy off the right hand bit of the steps, I'm thinking they may be tulips?
As I started to dig I discovered some stones under a thin layer of grass so I started clearing more and more to find a lovely stone path just where we had walked.
My hands were hurting and arms aching when I got to this point, I did try carrying on the next day but didn't have the strength.
Whoops I left a mess;) Tony is clearing all the grass I dug up while I'm making another tea.
The view from the balcony is getting better, but still a long way to go.
