This is a tulip called Angelique. I tried several new ones in small quantities and this one is certain to be reordered in the autumn.
This one is Flamingo. It may be an utter show off but I like this one too in small quantities.
These are in pots overlooking the valley, somewhat windblown and battered throughout April but shining in the sun today. They are Pimpernel.And this is the view from my greenhouse (liberally sprinkled with dandelions). Thank you Ian for spending all day yesterday assembling it, one of the best presents I have ever had.
