In the Garden #15- Tulips

Looking back on our trip to Great Dixter… whilst I rested on a bench, Mr A. went for stroll around the grounds. He stumbled across some beautiful tulips and decided to take the shot looking down at them.

With their vibrant colors and delicate petals, tulips are a classic garden favorite. They come in a range of hues, from fiery oranges and bright pinks to cool blues and pastel purples. Their graceful stems and unique shape make them a standout feature in any garden.

At Great Dixter, these tulips were at the height of their beauty. Standing tall and proud, they added a splash of color to the already stunning landscape. Mr A’s photo captures their essence perfectly, with each petal delicately unfurled and the sun highlighting their brilliant shades.

While tulips may only bloom for a few weeks each year, they are a welcome sight in any garden. Their vivid colors and unique shapes make them an eye-catching addition to flower beds, containers, and even as cut flowers in a vase. Whether you prefer soft pastels or bold, bright hues, there’s a tulip variety out there for everyone.

In the garden, tulips embody the beauty and fleeting nature of life. Like these delicate flowers, we must cherish every moment of our own existence and make the most of the time we have. So, add some tulips to your garden and take a moment to appreciate the natural beauty that surrounds us.

  1. These are lovely, and a special treat for me, as though Spain has its own garden delights, tulips and other English favourites don’t feature at all.

    1. Oh, that is such a shame… you can’t beat English spring flowers.


      1. You’re right. You really can’t.

  6. I do so love tulips. They continue to grow, though cut and placed in a vase. There, they move in a slow dance then bow. I love their forms bowed as much as standing. One time I was designing arrangements in a flowershop when an irate customer returned to complain that he’d bought tulips that bowed in the vase so he threw them away. He expected them to only stand straight like soldiers. Tulips can be soldiers and ballerinas too. 😂💕✨
