Tulip Mania Continues

Our tulip mania continues – Adrian and I have been so in awe of our tulips this year that we feel we must do a follow up on our last tulip blog and share some photos with you. The colours, shapes and sizes have all been utterly outstanding, you just want them to keep on flowering. It’s almost difficult to decide whether some of them are peonies or they really are tulips.

It’s the first full week in May and I am so thrilled that I still have some that are just showing signs of bursting into colour.

Adrian will soon be calling round with shots of his tulips – on return from his holiday he was so delighted to be greeted with such a colourful, welcome sight from the tulip bed in his front garden – as follows.
