Last week I have been away on a short trip. Returning home, - my mind still on the blue Mediterranean sea - I am surprised to find a sea of tulips in my garden! How fast a garden can change in only four days.
Especially on the south faced wall of the house, it is magnificent. The pear tree is blooming a week earlier than last year. Short double tulips are flourishing underneath the pear tree. These are the so-called Murillo tulips. It is a bright mix of pink, orange and yellow. In the border next to it short double tulips are flourishing too. But here the colours are in soft pink pastel shades.
I like both combinations. The cheerful bright colours with the white pear blossom and the soft candy colours with the grey leaf of the olive tree.
Maybe you prefer one above the other, but I simply cannot choose.
Choose? Oh no. I am going to enjoy both!
The pink one is called 'Foxtrot'
The white one is 'Global Desire'
The strong pink tulip is 'Caravaggio'
The Murillo mix
How can I choose?
