Tulips,Jewels of the Garden!
|The frilly variety!|
I always think of Tulips as being the CanCan girls' of the Garden and people seem to either love them or hate them for their overblown extravagances. I have to say I fall into the love them category.It's that riot of sheer cheerful colour coming soon after the dull greyness of our long winter days that lifts my spirits to do a little dance of joy when I wander down the garden and see them.
|Rich and deep two tone|
|Opening up to show themselves off|
|deep jewel crimson|
|Just over our house a buzzard in the thermals|
|sweet scented violas and Acer tree|
|poppies and borage growing from seed|
|One of my lovely Auriculas|
|No shortage of Bees here|
|Goldfinches in the Ash trees|
|The side of the garage done to give it a bright Spanish look|
|The resident song thrush singing at Dusk.|
