A Week of Flowers 2022: Day One

Welcome to my annual ‘Week of Flowers’!

Over the next seven days I will be sharing some bright and colouful photos of flowers from my garden in 2022. My way of cheering up the gloomy days of November and December here in the northern hemisphere. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

If you would like to join in, simply post a photo (or two๐Ÿ˜‰) of a flower each day through to Tuesday 6th December and leave a link here in the commemts below so that we can find your post.

So, here are my photos for today, three in fact, reminding us of the colours of Spring!

First, a cheeky parrot tulip, ‘Silver Parrot’. It has become a habit, or perhaps a tradition, to grow parrot tulips in pots each year for some colour in the yard.

Here is a more elegant tulip, ‘Whispering Dream’, growing in the Oval Bed. The name alone is enticing. It flowers for ages and becomes even prettier as it maturesโ€ฆ

And finally, one of my favourite species tulips, ‘Little Beauty’. Its name says it all. That almost blue centre is mesmerizingโ€ฆ

It does feel good to take a break from the November grey (5ยฐC) and dream of the warmth of some Spring sunshine!

I am looking forward to seeing some of YOUR flowers too – and don’t forget to leave a link!

Happy gardening!

    • That’s why I always plant some in pots. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Not sure if any I planted in the ground will survive the plague of mice and voles this winter, but two large pots are already planted up for next year, covered with a metal mesh. ๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท

  6. That is a spectacular tulip, Cathy. Tulips, other than a very few of the small species varieties, are on my list of coveted flowers that are nearly impossible to grow in my part of the world.

  9. Thank you for repeating the Week of Flowers challenge. On a wet cold day, the stunning collection of flowers from a international collection of gardeners is a ray of sunshine.

  10. Little Beauty fully deserves its name. I hope mine return next spring. I am not posting today (the first day) but will join you for the rest of the week. And look forward to seeing what everyone else has posted.
