In case you hadn’t noticed, I’ve got a bit of a thing for black tulips. Queen of the Night, Black Parrot, Black Hero. Well, to be honest, for all tulips of all colours. As a result things were beginning to look pretty hectic down in Dorset this weekend.
I’m afraid that I didn’t get very organised last autumn when it came to thinking about wallflowers. So there is a bit of something missing compared to this time last year, but it’s good to see the borders filling out dramatically by comparison. And I’m not sure that the crazy clashing tulips don’t make up for it?
I’ve been running around a bit too much I think at the moment – a feeling you know, I wonder? This weekend I hit the buffers and had to head to bed for 36 hours. All told, not a bad thing to do, but I cannot tell you how much I’m looking forward to a few days off in the Lake District next week…
