Friday Bliss #142 - Tulips & Roses

For today I made a round summer bouquet with yellow roses and combined forget-me-not
and magic & dramatic black tulip Queen of the Night.
I know that this is an odd combination, but I wanted roses to celebrate my grandson Hannes
who will get his white student cap tomorrow. So lovely to assist the family gathering
after so many months - let’s party!

I promised to tell my experience of the new tulips I planted in the autumn.
Here are my recommendations. I like very much the dramatic Queen of the Night. 

The flaming red above is Purple Doll, very beautiful with striped petals and lily form.
On the right Groenland the flower of which is pretty small. Don’t especially like it.
I’ll try to find more of Purple Dolls in the autumn!

These low tulips are highly recommendable. They have both beautiful variegated foliage, 
the red one is Esperanto and the pale pink China town.

Both of these yellow tulips are highly recommendable.
On the left Akebono with big and heavy blooms. That is why they should be planted 
in an open space, so that they get light from everey direction. I planted them in a wrong place,
a house corner and they bended towards the light. On the right beautiful Spring Green.

To finish a night vision. We have some solar lights on the terrace
and they look fine in the dark.

Thank you for all the lovely comments you leave week after week at Friday Bliss.
Wishing you all a weekend!

  10. ...beautiful combination, here the tulips are gone and the roses are just starting.

  11. Die Farbenfülle ist überwältigend. Jetzt ist wirklich Sommer.

  12. Dearest Riitta,
    your bouquet looks great - a wonderful combination and not "odd" at all. And your tulips are really beautiful - by the way, I also like the look of the Groenland very much ... I find the color combination pink, yellow and light green enchanting ...
    When we were recently in a museum village (see my current post) there were also such beautiful tulips and I made up my mind to plant a few more bulbs this autumn - there were far too few tulips in our garden this spring!
    All the best

  13. Exquisite! Those deep purple tulips are amazing!

  14. You must like yellow a lot:)Have a lovely weekend, Jesh

  15. Dear Riitta!
    The bouquet for the grandson is beautiful. Wonderfully selected flowers and their colors.
    Have a healthy and happy weekend.

  16. Das ist ein wundervoller Blumenstrauss....
    sehr schöne Farb- und Blütenauswahl.
