Tulip Time

Last night at my birthday party there was a vase overflowing with
these beautiful tulips. I hadn’t seen this type before but I find them extraordinary.

Tulips are nearly at an end here unfortunately. Daffodils finished a couple of weeks
ago although thankfully, peonies are now coming into bloom. All these species thrive in this colder climate.

On the hills north of here wild thyme is coming into season and I look forward to seeing that too.
