In A Vase On Monday - Tulip Time
The daffodils are almost past - just a few late bloomers in the grass - and now it's tulip time in our garden. So it's a simple arrangement of flowers and buds in an equally simple vase for Cathy's In A Vase on Monday.
If you are a regular reader of this blog you will know by now that my husband doesn't keep the labels that come with anything he plants ... these tulips are no exception. I'm hazarding a guess that the fully opened orange/yellow ones might be called Flair - a single early dwarf tulip - but the yet to open yellow ones are a mystery. No matter what the name they are all a ray of sunshine at this time of year.
Here they are insitu. I'm ignoring, for now, the ground elder that is threatening to take over the round bed and just enjoying the colours of Spring instead. Word around the garden is that it is definitely Spring!
After taking the photos outside, the light is so much better there, the tulips were brought in and put on top of the fire - it is never on so never too hot for flowers - together with one of my latest acquisitions, a little wooden Easter bunny that, coincidentally, is holding a tiny wooden tulip.
To see many more flower arrangements - so much more artistic than mine - follow this link to Cathy's blog - links are always in the comments.
I wish you a wonderful week, weather permitting, in your garden.
