Well, as I've complained many times before, the camera (and in this case, possibly the sunset) reddens the petals. There's only one pink tulip there and it's the slightly larger tulip right in the middle of the picture. (It's been the only pink-among-the-nearly-black since my original 24, never multiplying, never getting removed.) The one that's 'showing off' in the foreground (left corner) is actually a purple tulip and the one in the upper right hand corner is a blueberry ripple (also called Rembrant) tulip. But in that light, the colour dif'rences are merely shades.

Too perfect? I like that ....

Taken two days ago - the main patch of purple tulips, just west (a little downhill) from the main black tulip patch.

The White Bleeding Heart got seperated and 2/3 of it got potted. All are still visible in this picture.

Thanks so much for showing us around your lovely garden Roland.

I wonder if you have seen the TV series Around the World in 80 Gardens - it is well worth watching if it comes your way.

Thanks folks for dropping in.

And remember ... staring around page 18, I've got the whole summer of '07 in photos in the thread 'My Great White North'. I know it helped me through some bored winter nights.

These iris have since started wilting away, but I did get a bit of a close up on them a coupl'a days ago ...
