Rhubarb And Custard


Inspired by Cats red and yellow sweets these pair of flowers were growing in the centre bed of the community garden up at the allotment yesterday. The Red Rhubarb-esque of the Tulip, and the Yellow of the Daffodil.
I thought of these two colour combination before I slept last night.My own Daff's and Tulips are only thinking about flowering. The red tinged Tulip is very early flowering.
I hope my own gardens will flower soon then I can blog them.

We had our first real rhubarb yesterday from my first try at forcing it. Now for the real custard bit!

Hello

I've just joined Blotanical and am looking through the blogs.

I can't decide whether I most envy other people's gardens or their cameras!

Hi Esther,I like peoples photos and the gardens.Unless they tell you what camera they use you cant tell.I have used a mobile phone camera for a long time before the digital camera.Mine is getting wonky with over use!I wander if Fuji would sponsor me another camera :)
