Yes, I agree. ;-) I can't wait for the sun, because the inside of this tulip is glorious!

It's a similar colour to tulip sprengeri...well, perhaps not as red. I have a dream of having an orchard underplanted with sprengeri....can you just imagine? that's what heaven will be like B!...well, the heavenly orchard anyay...not ALL of heaven because there will obviously be a lot more flowers than that......:))

Love this..really uplifting! Always dreamed of owning a cornfield of red poppies.

Yes, that would be nice. I remember a field not far from where Oliveoil lives...where there are red poppies every year amongst the corn...lovely!

Most of my daffs are about an inch up Yorks! only the big early one I posted is out, there are tow or three of them now, I can't believe how early they are! My crocuses are showing colour and would come on no end if we could get just a little bit of sunshine!
