Inspired by all the other Six on Saturday posts which feature the dreamy tulip ‘Angelique’, I thought I would add a few soft and creamy ones of my own. Six on Saturday is where The Propagator invites garden bloggers from around the world to share six things going on in our garden right now.
1. Tulips ‘Jazz’ and ‘Marilyn’
The combination reminds me of apple blossom, and is planted near one of our apple trees to flower at the same time. ‘Jazz’ is in the foreground.
2. Apple Blossom
Talking of which…
The forget-me-nots have lost their pink now, and are entirely soft blue, standing proud of the foliage.
4. Plumptious foliage
Everything is plumping up beautifully. Here are geranium, rose and peony pillows. I can see flowerbuds on all of these now, and am getting ridiculously excited.
5. Virburnum opulus ‘Rosea’
I love the softness of virburnum. This is pale green at the moment, and will plump up more, before turning snow-white.
6. Yay! One more pink tulip!
Sorry. Couldn’t resist.
What are your favourite soft and creamy ones?
