For last Monday’s vase of flowers I used Tulip Ballerina, one of my favourite tulips when planted in the garden; delicately perfumed with the scent of honey they are an elegant Lily-flowered tulip.
Some of you were surprised when I said that the tulips would continue growing while in the vase so here’s a series of images that shows how they changed over the last seven days.
I find tulips beautiful in all stages of their development; some, like Ballerina, remain beautiful as they fade and the petals dry. There may be one more day remaining to enjoy this vase before the petals fall.
Are you as in love with tulips as I am; what’s your favourite?
