I have had a steady flow of flowers since March when my first tulips came out.
These purissima tulips complimented the pheasant's eye narcissi perfectly (I'm not sure about the rogue deep pink one...it must have got muddled up somewhere along the line!)
They were followed by ballerina, a lovely lily-flowered variety which picked out the centre of the narcissi.
Then came the drama of the parrot tulips which start out green and wavy.
Only to burst open in a flourish of colour.
My favourite one this year is the peony-flowered angelique which has sat serenely underneath the drift of white blossom on my clematis montana, which has so many flowers on it this year I have done a number of double-takes thinking it had snowed again.
Closely followed by this explosion of red and white, carnaval de Nice...
