Spring Garden - April 2011 - Exotic Tulip with Bokeh

BEST SEEN LARGE.

My friends on Flickr have been busy posting pictures of all the Spring flowers that have been popping up all over the Northern Hemisphere recently so I thought I should join in the fun. I also promised my good friend 'judecat' I would. I was telling her that my wife had bought a mixed bag of bulbs at a nearby Garden Centre in October last year and had spent a busy afternoon that Autumn scattering them about the garden. You then forget all about them till the first sunny day in April at which point the garden bursts into a riot of colour. It happens every year but it always comes as a delightful surprise as you are never sure what colours you will get and, of course, it augers the arrival of the Summer soon to come.

Thought this intense mauve Tulip was well worth sharing with you all. Enjoy them while they last.
