Tulip Time

Every autumn we plant more tulip bulbs and inevitably by the spring we have forgotten what we planted and where we planted them. So when they start to flower we are always in for plenty of surprises.

The low light of a morning in early spring is a perfect time to photograph them. I am sure they grow just to be photographed, as they are such posers!

Let’s have a wander around and see what we have …………

And there are more where these came from! (Tulip Time – Extra Time)

About greenbenchramblings

A retired primary school head teacher, I now spend much of my time gardening in our quarter acre plot in rural Shropshire south of Shrewsbury. I share my garden with Jude my wife a newly retired teacher , eight assorted chickens and a plethora of wildlife. Jude does all the heavy work as I have a damaged spine and right leg. We also garden on an allotment nearby. We are interested in all things related to gardens, green issues and wildlife.

    Wow! You have a full orchestra of Tulips there… they’re so beautiful! Mine are getting pretty battered by the wind at the moment so I’m glad that you’ve shared yours.

    Such a great show of tulips. Wonderful. Do they winter over where you are? Here they do not do so reliably.

    • Some over-winter and last for years others disappear in their first winter. We plant some every November to keep a good show going. Our problem here is that we sometimes get very wet winters and temperatures drop below 20 often.
