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!
