A Few Tulips

We have a little raised patch in the garden, a little something to look upon while doing the washing up and other kitchen jobs. During the Autumn Imogen planted lots of different bulbs in it and we've had quite a bit of colour from Crocus', Daffodils and now the most beautiful and different coloured Tulips.



 So pretty, it never fails to make me smile in the morning when I'm greeted by such vibrant colours.





Just like Spring, we've been a bit late this year with our planting. I was really thrilled with these Sunflower seeds, this photo is just a couple of days after planting.



 It's always exciting to see such quick results. I'm hoping they'll grow tall and strong and can be planted along the fence behind the Tulips (which will have gone to sleep probably by then).

As well as all the seeds I've planted... we also had a trip to find some ready grown plants to give the garden a boost.





Just a few tomato plants, couple of trailing Petunias and look at these lovely herbs, you can't beat fresh herbs in your cooking


It's been so good to be able to sit in the garden and craft. As well as my crochet projects, I made this wee chappie. He was a gift with Homemaker magazine and just needed sewing and stuffing. What lovely cheery colours and bright plumage he has.



I love Spring.



Take care

  1. Tulips are such cheery flowers. Mine haven't bloomed yet, though they're in bud so I've got them to look forward to soon. I had a mammoth sowing session yesterday and got lots of seeds planted which have needed doing for a while now, including sunflowers.

  7. Your tulips are beautiful. I think Spring is my favourite season for the garden. Both this garden and my last have always looked at their best then.

  12. Lovely tulips - I think they're my all time favourite flower though the soil here is too heavy for them to grow well. Love the little bird - I saw it in the shops and it was very hard to resist! x
