Flower Friday: May 24, 2013

The bulbs are in a fairly shady spot of the cutting garden, so they are late bloomers. Not sure if they will get enough sunlight to return next year or not, so I am enjoying them while they are here!

Tulips. Keeping the leaves on make a pretty decent frog for holding them upright and in place.

Tulips, daffodils, Jacob's ladder, and allium. The Jacob's ladder ("Bressingham purple") smells wonderful!

A small vase for Tiegan: tulips and daffodils.

More tulips.

Even more tulips. This shows the evolution of the plain tulip bouquet in the previous photo. As some older blooms faded over the course of the week, I removed them, cut the remaining stems a bit shorter, and added some hosta leaves around the edges to fill in the gaps and push them closer together so the whole thing looks like it's still full of flowers.

And ... tulips. We are having a week of heavy downpours each night, and I wanted to bring these inside before they got beaten down by the rain. They should last a while since they haven't opened yet. I'm not usually a huge fan of pink (unless it's warmed up to a salmon-y hue), but these are nice and cheerful.
