Nearly September! I have a lot of wallflowers ready to plant out. Yes, the old 'Blood Red' seed proved viable. Next year, I'm determined to have tulips with them and I've just put in an order with Sarah Raven. Not only does she have wonderful taste, the bulbs are good value and she has free postage this weekend. Of course I've included my favourite 'Ballerina', which you can see in today's icon.

I'm not a big fan of tulips in general, but those Ballerinas look lovely.
They go particularly well with wallflowers and I love them with the acid yellow-greens of euphorbias. The picture is so clear in my mind as to how it will all look that it encourages me to do the work!

I love tulips and all spring flowers, really. They're so welcome after the winter. DH loves the velvety coloured wallflowers, but I've never managed to get hold of any, somehow...

That's the thing about gardening: always looking forward. Wallflowers are very easy to grow from seed.
Oh, my, those tulips are heavenly!
Something to look forward to!
