As a child I thought tulips were boring, but now I can’t resist them. Some have been with me for years.
Purissima, I think. Very old, I don’t know the name, they come up year after year.
Others are new. I think this is called Shirley.
Some are a mixture, older Apricot Beauty and newer Angélique?Don’t know, possibly Johann Strauss.
But in any grand plan there are always mavericks…
These should all be peach-coloured, no reds in this bed.
And these were a freebie with a weird name, that I cannot at present remember.
This evening I almost picked this narcissus and then noticed the charmingly camouflaged resident. I don’t remember seeing one like this before. However a quick search of the Internet suggests that it is an orange tip (the orange is only visible with the wings open).
The long-awaited greenhouse arrives tomorrow, the base is nearly finished.
An addition – Snakeshead Fritillary – thanks Andrew.
