Apple blossom is covering the tree this year and it looks fabulous against the blue sky. I am a little fearful for the damage risk, posed by the forecast of cooler temperatures next week, but we cannot control the weather, can we.
Named Graceland they are part of a lovely mix of tulips with so called ‘Apricot Beauty’ and ‘La Belle Époque ‘. Planted lasagne style they have not disappointed.
Even their insides are attractive
I also planted a ‘scented’ mix of tulips. Surprisingly to me they actually do what they say i.e. they smell. The colours are strong and rich, the scent rather similar to freesias.
