Glorious

The weather has been glorious this week

In the garden tulips are in bloom.

I thought these were going to be cream, but they have a beautiful pinky edge.

Look at the lovely frill on the centre leaves.

Tulips are definitely in my top 5 of favourite flowers.

I’ve just looked them up on my blog (of course, this is why I keep a blog!) they are called Angelique and the packaging says they are scented. I shall have to go and have a sniff.

I love the fact that they open during the day and close up at night.

Heliotropic.

When we walked the dogs tonight the sunset was beautiful, the day has been clear and the air is still.IMG_7865 IMG_7866

Next year I need to make sure I plant more outdoor hyacinths for next year (I usually just do indoor bulbs) as the scent from the two on the patio is amazing.
