We have really been enjoying the colours the tulips have brought to the garden this year. They are all over now and the flowerbed is moving into a new, less showy but equally beautiful phase. The most spectacular bulbs have been the tulip princess and her four companions. Here she is on 5 May,
then 7 May,
1st of June, sheltering under an umbrella from a very heavy thunderstorm. I wasn't quite ready to part with her yet!
Yesterday, 2 June,
and finally this evening, 3 June, with one petal fallen but still sassy and glamorous, and still packing a punch in the flowerbed!
