TULIPS AND OTHER MATTERS
I've had some very lovely tulips in my pots this spring. These red and yellow striped, mixed with plain red, have been very good - wind and rain resistant as well! The stripey ones come out beautifully in the sun. When it shines!
These lovely dark pink ones have so far been very good, but don't seem to want to open. Still, they are rain resistant and also stand up well to the wind. Of which we have had a lot!
However, they were bought as a package called "Raspberry Ripple" (a lovely two colour ice cream if anyone doesn't know!) but someone has put vanilla in instead of the pale pink tulips banded with dark pint that were supposed to be there! Rather disappointing.
I have written to the originators of the tulips, and am hoping for at least my money back. I will let you know!
I won't be posting after this for two or three weeks, as we are away on holiday. On another cruise, this time down to the Canary Islands, via Spain and Portugal. I'm planning on warm sunny weather!
