In the past week the tulips have come on at the most dramatic pace. The ones in the front border which catch the afternoon sun are looking quite scorched. Two pots of parrot tulips have grown in very funny shapes - following the sun - but what a joy they are. Here are a couple of images of Parrot tulip Rai. They were a last-minute decision but I am so very happy I indulged myself.
Small Garden Story
Over some 15 + years, I have been photographing the evolution of my small (85 x 15 foot) garden and it seems a waste not to put these records into some sort of context. Beginning here in April 2010 this Blog is intended to both act as a diary and to share past and present successes (and some failures), pleasures and disappointments with fellow garden-lovers. In due course, I intend to fill in some of the background and early days but that will have to wait until the winter months!
