Monday has arrived again and I haven’t posted since my vase last week. I have had a virus and not felt up to doing very much at all and on Wednesday last week the winds were so strong it was almost impossible to stand up. One of the canes helping to support the new Carrob broke in too leaving the tree blowing wildly around and so despite the cold and wind I had to help rescue it. At the same time I realised that some of the Anemones had been blown down; they were duly, picked and simply added to last Monday’s vase.
In the greenhouse two other varieties of tulips were showing some colour, Purple Peony and Ballerina; more of the Purissima also opened including one with on petal half coloured orange; the line of the colour is so straight and defined it looks as if someone had painted it with a brush.
I wonder what caused the petal to mutate to being half orange, any ideas anyone?
Again this week I hand tied the tulips and placed them in a simple cylindrical glass vase.
With many thanks to Cathy at Rambling in the garden for hosting, challenging us and inspiring us to find flowers in our gardens or locally to pick and bring into the house to enjoy. Do visit Cathy or better still, what can you find in your garden today?
