I'd thought I'd lost this tulip but I'm pretty sure it's this one, the lone straggler in the back of the border.

I hope it is folks - apart from the obvious red tulip, there was only one other colour tulip I inherited and thought I might have dug it up by mistake when I gave my borders an overhaul last autumn. I think I will dig this up after its flowered to protect it 😊 @justin @debs69 @signora.valentine @kathy @lamaisonbleueoleron

Always a joy to find a tulip in the garden. I think I've lost a lot of mine this year to the wet🙁 oh well will try again next year. 😄

comment
richard.spicer.7906

Oh no 😧, that's a shame @stephaniewatkins - are there not any you can get from the garden centre perhaps already pot grown for some April or May cheer? I guess they are a little more expensive that way though 😕

Most of mine too @fuschia , this one is quite advanced compared to my planted ones from Autumn. I think some older ones are near ready too.

Hi Dan, I use a Canon EOS 550D SLR with normal lens, but I change the photo setting to 'close up'.
