Monday gives everyone the opportunity to pick something from their gardens to put in a vase and enjoy in their homes; Cathy at Rambling in the Garden can have had no idea what a change she was going to make to people’s lives when she first thought up this meme.
Today I have more tulips to share with you although I could have picked many more colourful Anemone coronaria or some of the wild plum blossom which is now flowering all around me.
The first vase was actually picked and arranged for the weekend.
I grew Cerinthe from seed years ago and have never had to sow it again; it reliably sets seed very quickly (before it gets too hot and the seeds germinate in the first autumn rains; some years it flowers as early as Christmas but this year it has only just come into flower.
I think she’s very charming indeed!
Tulip Malaika, Lavender pink, feathering to brownish orange edge. Sadly Peter Nyssen says this tulips won’t be available in future as the growers are withdrawing it; a shame as it has very interesting colouration
The forecast for today was clouds with rain but so far it is warm and sunny, very different to the weekend which was horrible.
Have a lovely week and thank you Cathy for hosting
