Tulipmania #1

Tulips – north-facing

These pots of white/pink striped tulips with the green/purple ones and lipstick red are located at the front of my house which is in a north-facing courtyard where the sun never actually reaches the steps on which the pots stand. It can get a bit blustery in the courtyard, but so far these lovely flowers have withstood the weather and the pink ones have been flowering for a couple of weeks now. I see now that the pink and purple work well together, but perhaps the red ones should move to the back garden. I’ll work on the colour palette for next year!

    • But what a pleasure awaits you! I guess you are back from Africa now? Must be a shock to arrive home to the cold. And I can’t wait to see the penguins (and the beach huts – I do hope you got to see the beach huts in Muizenberg).

      • Oh Jude I was so disappointed as we did not get to see the huts! They would have been in the area of our cycling tour but I didn’t realize it until we were transferred past. It will be a disappointment in an almost perfect trip.
        The penguins were amazing as was so much in Africa. So much to share in the weeks and months ahead.

  1. Gorgeous Jude . . . . you’ve inspired me to make a date in MrB’s calendar so we can aspire to do something similar next year πŸ™‚
