It’s all about the Tulips this week. In our garden and most of the neighbouring gardens Tulips are the shining stars at the moment. In fact everywhere I look I can see tulips in bloom! We grow all sorts of Tulips because trying new varieties each year is fun and it’s amazing how they all have different flower shapes and colors. I love the pastel creams, the pale pinks and lemons. I love the bold red, deep purple and bright cerise tulips too. It’s hard to choose my favourite but I do love orange…
There’s an orange theme going on in our Summer Border where I’ve planted them with red Wallflowers.
The bright orange flowers with pointed petals is Ballerina and I think the others are Princes Irene. I love their glaucous greeny-blue foliage too.
And Tulip foliage isn’t the only thing looking good right now… some of our Hostas are beginning to unfurl and their leaves are looking at their squeaky fresh best right now. Pre slug nibble of course.
With a bit of luck the Hostas may stay intact this year because our pest controllers are at it again. These wild ducks visit us daily and rifle through the borders and grassy areas in search of slugs, snails and tasty creatures of all kinds.
What’s looking good in your garden this week? I’d love to know. You are most welcome to leave a comment with a link to your post.
Hope you are all enjoying the lovely weather. Happy Gardening Gillian 🙂
