As promised, here is the third and final post about tulips this year. Above is Angelique, a really frilly, blowsy, over-the-top tulip. A couple of the flowers are multi-headed too.
In case that just wasn't over-the-top enough, here is Carnaval de Nice in bold stripes. Another one which demands to be admired.
They do make quite a display!
...and I noticed yellow of some of the petals in the tulip at the back which I thought was quite unusual.
Magnolia Susan, backed by the lilac tree looked wonderful against the Mediterranean blue sky we had over the bank holiday weekend (almost unheard of to have sunny and hot weather on a bank holiday - usually, it is dull and rainy).
Finally, here is Magnolia Fairy Blush which took a battering when the wall fell on it and which looked like it was sulking all through the winter. In fact, I did think about removing it as it looked so unhappy and lost a large proportion of its leaves. However, when the flowers look like this, how can I get rid of it? Just beautiful.
