tulip

Maytime

I've been looking at gorgeous photos of tulips on people's blogs. Sigh. Yet again I have a garden which tulips will not like. They like a light, free draining soil and I'm fated to live on clay. I can't tell you the money I've spent on tulips over the years only for them to disappear. Ordinary red ones seem to survive anything and these have just popped up in a bed here.



Not very exciting but then, who needs flowers when you can have foliage like this?
