In a Vase on Monday: Happy!

Having a few tulips blossom out in the garden makes me happy! It only seems right to share some of them In a Vase on Monday.

‘Angelique’ tulips have come back in their second year and are blooming abundantly. We added the new blossoms of Ajuga reptans ‘Mahogany’ for contrast.

Please visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden this week to see her beautiful vase and those of others who are participating in this weekly event.

    Those Angelique are lovely John. Do your tulips often re-bloom the next year? I’ve not had much success with tulips.


  5. Angelique is a favourite of mine although she rarely re-blooms with any success – these days I grow the her in pots and compost the bulbs when flowering is over as it is not worth the effort of planting them in the beds.

    I used to grow Angelique in pots in front of my kitchen windows but they were a paler pink than your pictures seem to show – and like Julie I found it wasn’t worth trying to keep them for another season. Yours are gorgeous anyway – and how lovely to have (fairly) early tulips blooming (I know I have tulips too, but the species tulips are always earlier here) 🙂 Thanks for sharing


  7. Oh my goodness, these are gorgeous! Tulips are my favorite flower, but I have never seen these before. My husband is the gardener, so I am planning to show him your blog and these tulips!!


  8. Beautiful tulips, John! I hope you will consider joining my new link up, April Flowers, that opens Thursday 🙂
