Beautiful ! What a suitable name for a lovely flower ... ;o)))

I had never heard of this variety until our son and and d-in-law bought some for me ... I did know I was a Tomato and a Poppy ... lol! ... :o) Oh my, have just seen the ads to the right of my screen ... Tulip Trees at £43 each!

But £43 for any Shirley would be a bargain .. ;o)

Lovely shade of pink set off by the forget me nots.

That's a beautiful tulip & set off so prettily by those dainty forget-me-nots. I'm not very fond of the bright, flashy tulips, but this one is so delicate in its colouring.

They are a lovely colour Shirley..I think of you,when I see these on sale at the garden centres....:o)..look great with the blue..I haven't grown tulips before,till this year..but I'm glad I did..they seem to last for ages...

These look so pretty with the forget-me-nots. A very nice tulip to share your name with..... :o))

Thanks all - I promised myself last year to remove the half a dozen bright red Tulips from the border after they had flowered ... completely forgot ... so for another year the pastel ones (which I love) have been competing with the bright ones! ... :o(

Like everyone says a lovely tulip for alovely lady, love the colour.

Now I'm blushing, Carol ... to almost the Tulip colour! ... :o)

So pretty together Shirley!

Thankyou both ... I pulled up quite a few Forget-me-nots today as emerging Perennials need the light now ... well they really need the sunshine but let's not ask for too much ... a dry day was welcome ... lol!

8 May, 2012

 

Yes, and it was so much milder too . . . very welcome!

8 May, 2012

 

Much milder here too ladies...thank goodness. All my Cornus controversa leaves are frosted :(

8 May, 2012

 

Indeed, Sheila ... I actually felt it was warm enough to sit on a garden chair with a cuppa and a biccie for a while ... even the Sparrows and Bluetits landed close by for some crumbs ... :o) .......

Oh no, Karen ... will they recover from the frost? ... I think the biggest danger in my garden will be from so much rain ... :o(

8 May, 2012

 

Yes, me too...for about five minutes until the sun went behind a cloud and it was cold again! Still, a definite improvement!

8 May, 2012

 

We were growing this one, not seen it this year, it is such a delicate shade of pink.

I was given 30 bulbs back in 2007, Dotty ... have never bothered to lift them and this is the first year that only about half have appeared ... think I've had good value from them though ... :o)
