Tip Toe Through the Tulips in April … Part Two.

Tip Toe Through the Tulips in April … Part Two.

Tulips have been emerging, little by little, each day and opening their hearts to the sun. Round, frilly or spiky, they are all totally beautiful.

There have been many Bees buzzing around in the sunshine and I can imagine their delight when they come to an exquisite flower such as this pink Tulip, with its fragrant and dusty pollen-filled interior.

I saw these joyful shapes literally shining like stars amongst their leaves.

The following day another amongst them was trying to unfurl its spiky petals open to the sun as well, but it cannot, because it is forever attached to its stem by a gripping leaf … a very strange and rather sad sort of deformity.

Bluebells tinkle and chime ever noisily amongst a forest of thrusting leaves!

I tried to quell them one year but they were having none of it and have returned stronger than ever.  Viewed close to, they are very beautiful.

It has been the month of the Tulip, but other flowers and leaves are taking over and filling the garden with more colours: ….. gifts for part three.

Anne ….. End of part Two. ….. Nearly Mid-April, 2020.

    It’s a privilege to have the time to look closely and enjoy the garden clutter Karen. So much food for the imagination and such a pleasure too. I recognise the life sources it is for insects but I wonder how it feels to be a bee or a butterfly settling with tiny feet, feeling the petals’ softness, or seeing the luminosity in the sunlight with tiny, searching eyes? :lol: :clover: :rose:
