Every Monday Cathy, from Rambling in the garden, invites us to join her in finding flowers in our own garden to pick and put in a vase to enjoy in our homes. The meme comes with a warning – it can become very addictive!
I have tulips again today! This time they have mostly reached flowering stage together. My tittle refers to the tulips name – Tulip ‘Purple Prince’, he is a very handsome fellow and very tall, certainly taller than any of my other tulips.
I chose my silver glass vase to complement these tall tulips.
They were in the fridge chilling for 135 days and took 54 days from planting to flowering.
Returning to last week’s vase; another case of mistaken identity I fear. Only one of the buds changed colour from white to pink; all the others remained white which means I might as well have picked them at least a week earlier than I did.
All the rest have remained white – not unattractive and I would certainly look for these from a better supplier for next year as I think the white-edged foliage is a plus point.
Do visit Cathy to see what she and other vase fillers from around the world have found today.
