I decided I wasn't going to write a post, and certainly not a tulip post, this morning. That was until I went out into the garden where the birds were singing madly in the warm morning sunshine, and found the most gorgeous tall, stately, peach and purple tulips.
This is now one of my standard tulip mixes that I grow each year purely to see this glorious combination towards the end of the tulip season. The purple tulips are the unbeatable 'Queen of Night' and the wondrously peach tulips are mostly 'Menton' with a couple of other tall, orangey-coral varieties.
As usual I wasn't wearing a crinoline, but I did feel rather like a crinoline lady in her heavenly flower patch.
