I had so much fun photographing the tulips in the previous post, I decided to do it again. Anything that enjoyable bears repeating, right?!!!
Besides, 'Sensual Touch' just keeps getting better & better:
So it would be stingy of me not to share the goodness with you!
They've opened to the most heavenly shade of apricot/coral/orange ~ like having a gorgeous sunset on a stem.
Definitely, definitely ordering more!!!!
Also, all my fellow pink lovers, you'll be thrilled to know 'Foxtrot' deepens to an even lovelier montage of our most beloved color:
Yummy, yum, yum ~ right??!!
Enough of the updates, let's move on to some new blooms (because this time of year it's hard enough to keep up without going backwards!) Another exquisite double, 'Charming Beauty' is opening next to 'Sensual Touch:'
That was good planning, wasn't it? I think it would be even more magnificent if I added in some yellows this fall??? Note to self....
Then there are Greggi tulips, 'Tsar Peter:'
which, I think, are starting to multiply. :-)
Most happy about that.
The next photo's for you Shady Gardener ~ look how the Virginia Bluebells have multiplied since you shared the start with me:
I had to move them once but I think I found their happy place!
They've rewarded me with a nice clump so thank you, again, very much!
Finally, the new project ~ an enclosed yew bed with a lilac standard as the centerpiece:
The left side of the bed is actually part of the yew pathway I put in last spring. I'm still deciding what to plant in the center but whatever I decide, I'm pretty sure there will be some veggies mixed in.
Above, a longer shot of the back garden ~ I've certainly made a dent in the grass now!
The garden is re-energizing me ~ thank goodness ~ so much happening every day, it's impossible for it not to rub off! Thank you for all your support too ~ you've left me the nicest comments & they absolutely made me smile. :-)
