Given that I had a vase of flowers from the garden, I could hardly let my Monday go by without contributing to Cathy’s meme “In a Vase on Monday”! Thank you Cathy, of Rambling in the garden https://ramblinginthegarden.wordpress.com/2015/05/04/in-a-vase-on-monday-in-your-own-hands/ , for hosting such a fun meme! Pop on over to Cathy’s blog to see some great ideas for creating arrangements from what is in the garden now from gardens all around the world!
These parrot tulips are new flowers for me. We planted them last fall, and they have provided a lovely pop of colour in the garden.
They are rather unusual, or shall I say “sloppy”? Yes, I’m sorry, I think they are rather sloppy the way they open up and seem to almost hang with their arms wide open! I still like them, I just find them rather … odd?
Their petals have a fringe to them, too, just to make sure they are completely different looking to other tulips! 😉
My second vase is filled with flowers that were either on the ground, or I cut them because they were on their way out…
Lovely colours, even if a bit tattered looking!
I’m loving that I had enough tulips to cut for a vase. I *still* struggle with cutting flowers from the garden! It’s not so bad if they are nearly gone though.
I’ll finish with one more look at a most unusual tulip…
