Tip Toe Through the Tulips in April.

Tip Toe Through the Tulips in April.

The early first Tulip is now blousy but there are more to come.

Imagine what it’s like to be tiny, like a bee or an elf, and see the flowers in GG close to … hovering above their heads like a bee or fly, or walking through a forest of tinkling Grape Hyacinth Bells. Each day Tulips grow brighter.

White bells of Snowdrops have a different sound.

Daffodils are still waving and blooming gently…..

… and Myosotis has not forgotten that I wanted lots and lots of it this year.

There are tiny, soft petals all around GG ready to settle upon, be it with tiny limbs or delighted eyes.

…and more to come … the Clematis Montana was not totally destroyed.

End of Part One ….. Then there are leaves, blossoms and more Tulips …..

Anne … April 2020.

    Thanks for your comments Gals…As you must know from your own gardens there is great delight when wandering through, to see the tiny blooms, and amazing colours and in making new discoveries. With each day there is another Tulip opening in this current lovely weather, and I count myself lucky to have this small plot of soil to revel in. It allows my over-fertile imagination to run riot [why not I say so long as I keep most of it under rein :lol: ] As I grow older ‘n older I remember more the delights of childhood: Looking after the baby bunnies under the apple trees on a Saturday morning as Daddy cleaned out their cages: reading the fairy tales in books with wonderful illustrations of flowers that I had/still have, and remembering the people who gave them to me. Our gardens are wonderful places aren’t they? They are sometimes hard work but then they pay back with the growing results :good: :dance:

  5. A lovely walk around your garden Anne, I love this time of year, the colours are so welcome. The tulips have been stunning this year. Or is it that we just have more time to appreciate them and soak up their beauty to distract from what’s going on for just a few moments.

    Hallo Lynn … I have more Tulips anyway and some plonked into the ground in the nick of time anywhere, but they are really stunning. :-) The odd weather patterns seem to have suited them :confused: :-) I HAD to water again this afternoon as it was so dry, and I agree with you, yes, the colours are absolutely lovely.Did you get your grass trimmed again?
    Have a lovely evening :rose: :rose:
