Lone Tulip


A lone Tulip that has not quite finished flowering yet.The rain is falling outside still, heavy rain. Everything looks very green. Only the Tulips, Brooms, and Salvia are in flower.
The allotment will be well watered now. I hope to go back up tomorrow if its not raining.
The plants will be drinking deeply after the three weeks of dry weather. I saw the Robin flying into the garden for a quick snack before darting off into the privet hedge.
I am going back to work for a long day.The garden is quiet except for the noise of the rain drops.

Hi Lynn,My first comment left for you dissapeared from the blog.Our scarecrows will have to be garden mates.Sorry to hear about your Son.I hope he recovers from his injurys.
The birds love all the food put out here.Libby should have the gardening bug soon and will hopefully learn about how plants and flowers grow.I hope the Pmpkin grows for Halloween to make a Jack O Lantern..
Thanks Niels,Its nice to have a comment from Denmark.We share a passion for the QOTN Tulip and Roses.I have nearly my first Rose of 2008, a scented yellow Rose.
I hope it opens as im at work so i can come back to see it.We have had three days of heavy rain so the ground looks lush and green.
I will follow your Roses via your blog :)
