Three Colours Red (and Yellow and Lilac)

The garden is at the in between stage now, where the spring bulbs and blossom have finished (except for the bluebells), and the shoots of cosmos, lady’s mantle, sweet peas,  gypsophila ‘Covent Garden’, and ‘Blue Dress’ flax or linum are showing, promisingly. There was netting over the gypsophila and flax to dissuade the squirrels and foxes from digging them, but as the shoots have grown, the netting is off and I just need to hope that the animals go elsewhere for their dinner!

In the meantime, here are some pretty tulips in three colours, which I was given last month. They are such a bright and cheerful addition to a room.
