I’ve saved the best for last! This simply stunning tulip was one of the bulbs I bought when I visited Amsterdam last summer. I planted it a bit late, January to be precise, when it was still very cold, and hoped that something would grow. And it has!
It’s called ‘Orange Parrot’ , isn’t it beautiful?! It reminds me of a Chinese dragon, the red and orange ruffled petals are so vibrant and richly coloured. I think this might be my tulip of the year!
I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing some of the beautiful tulips in the garden, they have brightened these last weeks, and I’ve looked forward to going outside each morning to see how they are faring.
