All that planning and rethinking didn't go to waste. Well done and looking sooooo much better.

Ok plans a foot,starting to see plenty of tulips appearing,some great some not so good,i mixed different bulbs when planting thinking it might look good but unfortunately there are significent size differences here and there. Ive re sown the lawn with enough seed to fill an acre. Pigeons and sparrows are loving it. Not much i can do now buy wait and see how thing develop..ive a lot to learn.

Sure isn't it coming along grand, and you're learning as you go. Tie up your 'little buddy' in the middle of the lawn, that should keep the birds away.

What a difference. It's coming along well. Maybe find a way of marking or recording the bulbs you want to move so that you can do it when they are starting to die back?

Should look much more interesting once the lawn grows back. But i think you get the idea.

Starting to take shape,so much more to do..especially planting..learning as i go,plant placement is difficult when you know very little,but always enjoyable..regardless of mistakes.

That's looking brilliant. Well done. What a difference in a few months! I find the learning is half the fun even if the mistakes are sometimes frustrating. The great thing about plants is, they can always be moved, if you go about it the right way.
A piece of advice I've often seen repeated (though I'm not to diligent about following it!) is to make notes in a diary of some sort of what you like and what you would like to do differently next time. It is surprisingly easy to forget, once a plant has gone past its 'showy' period, that it might look better moved elsewhere - until it comes up again next season and you think "Drat!"
