Crazy tulips In a Vase on Monday

It seemed a shame not to share these mad Tulips. I'm not quite sure what I was expecting when I ordered them. 

They are definitely eye catching and the petals are gorgeous and look like satin. 

Some are cream and some are white so I'm not sure if there are two types here or a variation. 
The red and white are 'Estella Rynveld' and the others might be 'Flaming Parrot' but the markings don't look right so that's probably wrong.

Rainbow In a Vase on Monday

If you are on social media at all you might have notices rainbows everywhere as well as all the lovely pictures people are displaying in their windows. 
Here is my version of the rainbow with respect for all the NHS workers putting themselves are risk for us. 

I bought this funny little vase over a year ago but have not used it much. It seemed perfect for this idea tho does always look as though it's falling over. 
I was impressed that I was able to find all these colours, some of them are small but it is all coming on in the garden with more coming out each day. 

Included are anemone, wallflower, tulip, narcissus, euphorbia, parsley, vinca, comfrey, hyacinth, aubretia, forget me not and muscari.

It makes me smile every time I see it which is surely the point of why we do this. 
Hoping you are all well and finding plenty to do in your gardens.
