This invitation to all bloggers to post photos of tulips was inspired by the Bloms display at the 1st Tulip Festival at Cambo Gardens in Scotland. Taking a few quick photos after the Anna Pavord talk it wasn’t until I uploaded them that I truly saw in detail the beauty and incredible variety of these flowers. My jaw dropped!! I only wish now I had taken longer to actually look at them.
For those going to Malvern, Bloms will be exhibiting in the Floral Marquee so if you want to see these tulips for real yourself you may see them there. I didn’t photograph all the varieties on display at Cambo. Being conscious of the time and others viewing them too I only went for the ones that caught my eye at that moment.
Royal Design, Flaming Spring Green, Spring Green, Danceline, Carnaval De Nice, White Parrot, Aria Card, Snow Parrot, Rem's Favourite, Ballade, Maytime, Charmeur, Blushing Beauty, Creme Lizard, Drumline, Apricot Parrot, Sensual Touch, Helmar, Abu Hassan and Exotic Emporor can all be seen in this posting.
Gosh now… I'm guessing that there has to be a few tulips that have caught your eye here too. I wonder if you could pick three favs from this group of photos. A very hard choice but if really pushed mine would be Flaming Spring Green, Danceline and Abu Hassan.
I now welcome as many postings as possible with tulip photos in the link list below. Past postings would be great too. Please do share the favs from your garden, gardens you have visited or blooms you have seen at garden show. Let’s see how many tulips we can collect in the next week or so.
Let's celebrate... The Tulip!
