Ballerina buds have a wonderful structure. And I spoke to soon earlier about the forget me nots - can you spot the blue haze in the background? I noticed today that it has started to bloom already @rachelbrooks

I've just been looking at the difference in the foliage for my tulips, never picked up on this before. This one seems to be quite flat, almost horizontal across the soil surface #tulip #tulipa #tulipaballerina

Well, not quite flat. Probably more like 45 degree angle. 🤓📐

Some of mine are upright and others nearly horizontal as well

I wonder if they are named as such because they replicate a ballerina perhaps! 🤔 @digforsanity @bigemrg @kathy
