We’re on schedule to complete the tasks we set ourselves. The arch is up, the summerhouse reroofed, the iris bed planted, the last section of the prairie garden almost prepared to receive the trays of seed raised plants.
So, what is looking good as we approach mid May? Tulips, of course. The dark and the light, hot colours and cold.
I love them all – from the top Shirley, Queen of the Night, Angelique, Spring Green, Menton. Next year I want to have many more. I particularly like this combination near the kitchen- Menton tulips with an unknown red parrot tulip we inherited
They should last long enough to hand over to the aquilegias and azaleas in this bed, all of which are now in bud. Such a promising time of year.
