As we are having some sunny weather today (following several days of showers, hail and wind) I thought I would celebrate with tulip photos. Above are 'Triumph' which I photographed a week or so ago - they do add lovely bright colours to the garden.
These were supposed to be 'Peach Blossom' which was a frilly pink double tulip. Hmm, they don't look very pink to me, more like red and cream. Still, even though the variety is a surprise, they are still really lovely.

Here are 'Triumph' again, without the white flower, but with the apricot and burgundy flowers taking centre spot.

I also have some 'Carnaval de Nice' tulips on the way, but they are still small and green at the moment. I shall just have to cope with delayed gratification for them, but they are something to look forward to. I think I need to have more pots/tubs of tulips next year...
