Six on Saturday

Having been inspired by the meme Six on Saturday, I’d better get on and do mine, I think.  Here goes.  It’s Tulip Time.  Oh, and because I have absolutely no self-control in these matters, there are seven for this Six on Saturday.  Don’t hate me…

Tulip Charming Lady.  And charming it definitely is.  New to me this year, and I’ll be growing it again.

Tulip Brownie.  This is the second year I’ve grown Brownie, and it’s a gorgeous little tryer, never discomposed by the weather.

Tulip Danceline.  Another one that’s new to me this year.

Tulip Silk Road. Again, new this year.  And it has a lovely fragrance.

Tulip Dream Touch.  Another lovely one, and so far immune to wind and rain.

Tulip Huis Ten Bosch.  Another new one.  Do I like it?  Not sure yet, but it’s definitely different.

My seventh pick is a mistake I made.  Last November, I sorted out the previous spring’s tulip bulbs into those that would flower again, and those that were too small to flower.  There were a lot that were too small.  So, what to do with them?  Give them the chance to grow on for next year?  Or compost them?  In the end, they went in to a new bed that had been sheeted over for a season, but as yet didn’t have a planting plan.  They were just planted in rows, with no finesse.  I expected a lot of leaf, and maybe the odd flower.  This was what I got:

Amazing.

I wonder where I’m going to put them all when it comes back round to planting time?
