It's not often I like my garden but...


...today I do.

The sun is shining, the sky is clear and blue and aeroplane-free (thank you, oh thank you Icelandic volcano) and my tulips are out and singing to the world. I was clipping my rosemary hedges when I glanced up and saw this. And I grinned, rather foolishly, but entirely happily.

This, I do believe, is what it's all for. What more can a girl ask?

It's a lovely border, enough to make any girl happy.

I'm not surprised. It looks absolutely lovely.

Oh, to have the tulips poking up through such lush perennial growth - mine are just surrounded by dirt.
Lovely garden :)

thank you :D

it's not often I get the chance to just look - we should all do it more often (and then perhaps we'd be nicer/less critical about our gardens!)

How very lovely indeed! It is a gorgeous time of year, especially with this weather and the recent peace and quiet.

Beautiful. I love tulips and really like the way yours are growing up through other plants. Gorgeous.
