I had a few of the white tulips left over from last week's wedding and put a couple in a tea glass on the windowsill above my sewing machine along with some sweet Cicely.
It has come out over the week and now looks more like a peony or rose than a tulip. Given the absolutely hideous weather we have this week it is lovely to have such a pretty view.

Goodness It's more like a peony definitely (think I am turning into Yoda as I keep talking in reverse!). Really will have to get hold of some of these for next year.

Hi there Jane,
What beautiful tulips. I have several white one sout in my garden....but they're not a spretty as those.
Isn't May a wonderful month in the garden? I love going round the garden most days and just enjoying seeing what is coming into bloom next. at the moment I have some lovely patches of Lily of he Valley out...the fragrance is divine.The garden is full of forget-me-nots too...so pretty.
Anyway, I just wanted to say how much I enjoy your blog, pics of your garden, flowers nad the wedding photos etc. ( How do you condition your hellebores? I find them quite difficult to condition well)
I am a floristry student, about to complete my first year...and hopefully , if there is a big enough take-up, start year two in September. Your pages are such an inspiration.
Wish I was nearer so I could come and see!!
Keep up the goo dwork.

Tulips and roses don’t actually have a major difference in their reproductive parts. That’s probably one reason why your white tulips suddenly look like roses. This photo, on the other hand, still resembles a tulip for me. Considering that it’s a monocot, I saw that the parts that are in multiples of three. I love the arrangement you made, btw. :D
