Well, perhaps the title of this post is a slight exaggeration, but lots of tulips will feature in this post. The one above is in a pot at the front door, in a single mix and is a delicate pale peach/apricot. I really enjoy seeing what is in the mix, but the downside is that if you particularly like one of the flowers, it is quite difficult to find out what it is, without doing lots of research.
This is the large tub which featured before but which only had purple and white tulips at that time. As you can see, other more fiery colours have joined the display now.
These are hiding at the back, but I thought they deserved a photo by themselves. The browny/pink one has a very unusual colour combination.
My favourite bright orange (and scented) Ballerina tulips. However, there seem to be some reds in there too. I don't think I mixed them up when I planted them, so perhaps this is an unintentional mix provided by the tulip bulb company.
Here is dark purple Ronaldo with paler pink Don Quichotte. I like this combination.
These are supposed to be perennial bulbs, so once they have finished, I'll save them and replant them.
This Ballerina tulip is in the border and is either one or two years old.
For anyone who has had a surfeit of tulips (which is not possible for me, but perhaps you may not be such a big fan as I am), here is a self-seeded cerinthe which I rescued last autumn (it was growing where the new shed was going to be and I wanted to save it from being squashed). It has grown well and rewarded me with lovely early flowers. Bees buzzing around have also been pleased to find it (its common name is honeywort).
