Tag Archives: Tulips
The day started with mists stretching right to the horizon so that the fields behind were almost totally shrouded, only one of three just visible.
The Tulip flowers were bejewelled with tiny diamond dewdrops.
And so were the Muscari………
The rest of the day was as glorious as yesterday and we worked again, planting and weeding and had our first lunch this year outside in the sunshine.
It has been a glorious Spring day – blue skies, sunshine and warmth! Let’s hope it lasts. We have worked in the garden all day and it is looking better!
I knitted some booties for a young friend’s first baby and today I received this photo of her very beautiful daughter wearing the SallyBoots.
1 It’s lovely that the days are so much longer and that we now get the evening sunshine across the back garden. This was truly a golden hour.
2 Today is Shakespeare’s Birthday and also the date of his death. He was born in 1564 and died in 1616 so all those wonderful plays and poems were written by the time he reached 52! The Globe Theatre in London have made this delicious looking cake in his honour.
3 My Suffragette garden, planted in purple, white and green to honour the Suffragettes, especially my Great Granny who was imprisoned in Holloway for her actions, is looking beautiful at the moment as the purple tulips are joining the white ones.
1 The cream and white tulips in my Suffragette garden are looking beautiful with raindrops decorating them.
2 A friend sent me a quotation from Ralph Waldo Emerson today which I really liked. Here it is for you.
Having now looked him up, I find there are many, many of his thoughts that I appreciate. I think his words will feature here again.
3 The bird house that we put up last Spring has residents! It looks as if a Blue tit couple has approved it. We have seen them coming and going over the last few days and are very hopeful that they will make it their family home.
