Trades Description Act?
You may remember that we did a complete make-over of the back garden last autumn, and my plan was that it would be colour-themed in gold, white and purple shades. Up to now everything has gone to plan and the plants in the borders are behaving themselves and pleasing me. Except – that I thought I had also colour coded the two troughs each side of the workshop door. I bought various bulbs for them.
And up came this tulip, well done! Good price, too.
I also planted these tulips called ‘Arabian Nights’ which looked purple-ish on the packet. Wouldn’t you agree?
BUT what came up? a red Tulip! Oy! What’s going on here?
I certainly don’t think that this is anywhere near purple, do you? Or is it my eyes? So now. with the blue and white Chionodoxa around their feet, I have ended up with what I can only describe as a ‘Patriotic Trough’ – but it clashes horribly with my colour scheme…
There are still some Narcissus ‘Thalia’ in the troughs, just coming through – I hope that they don’t turn out to be sky-blue-pink instead of pure white… Call the Trades Description Officer! I’ve been done!
