The Tulips I planted in October are all starting to flower now in the old garden. A swan song before I move onto the new garden. I went to Swillington nursery yesterday to buy pots. I came back with two Sunriver Daisys, a new Fuschia, and two white Surfinias plug plants for baskets, and for the new border two Delphiniums, and two Poppies called Pizzicatto.
The Pink/white Tinged ones are called Angelique, and they are pretty, contrasting to the pale Daffodils that are blooming alongside them.
Some unknown white Tulips that I bought from Wilkos. These have a hint of pink in the petals..
I love the lime green splashes on this Tulips, again it was from Wilkos and I cannot remember the name. I have spent since Friday packing boxes, and trying to clean rooms ready to move. I did not know how much stuff I have accumulated over the past few years!
The last job will be to rescue the plants I want to take with me, then tidy the garden up ready for the new tenants. I hope they like the garden, and enjoy sitting in it as much as I do.
As the saying goes as one door closes, another one opens. As this garden flowers away it will stay in my memory when i have finally left and handed the keys back in.
