Last week I worked really hard. The garden will open on Friday and Saturday, so everything has to be “tip top”.
To be sure I don’t forget anything I make a To-do list:
Weeding the paths
Mowing the lawn,
Cutting the hedge,
Cut fading daffodils,
Cleaning the barn,
Because of this I simply forget to enjoy my beautiful pink tulip border. The heck with all this cleaning I think, throwing the tools aside. I look up to the sky and only now I see the plum tree is already blossoming. The delicate white blossoms seem to float above the pink tulips.
This year I have made a combination of Tulip 'Flaming Purissima' together with T. 'Pink Emperor'. They are flowering at the same time, so that's fine, but I thought this tulip would be more 'pink'. In my view, it is a bit too red. A friend who comes by says: “This red looks just fine. It is deliciously spicy!”
I kneel down between the tulips and make a large series of photos. They are beautiful in the evening light. Despite the – red - pink tulips I am satisfied with the result.
A few more days and the garden will be open. And as every year I ponder: would anyone come to visit the garden?
Come on Hetty, keep your head up!
The garden is opened to the public April 22 and 23 see link below
