Tulip Sundae

Pretty red yellow and green tulips remind me of the colours in an ice-cream sundae – something I haven’t had for many years!

  1. Mmmm you’re right M . Used to love the raspberry drizzle over the top probably not a proper sundae though… ooh you’ve now got me thinking of a Knickerbocker Glory now … πŸ˜€
    Fabulous picture !

    • The raspberry drizzle was amazing – a real treat for the tastebuds, but Knickerbocker Glory: that brings back some memories. They have always felt and looked HUGE to me. I don’t think I’ve ever managed a whole one πŸ™‚

  2. Oh this just gets up and smacks me right in the eye,M! What are you on? Is it all this recent mendication??????????? There are two things I like here. First, obviously, are the vibrant colours – glowing, almost dayglow. But anyone can do colours. But what you’ve done, beyond this, is to arrange the colours is this series of wonderful, near horizontal but curving shapes. And with the front one mostly sharp, and then all that fiery background. Great stuff! A πŸ™‚

    • Many thanks, Adrian! I was lucky that the topmost tulip had flopped over a little and was leaning like just above the other – which had also flopped a bit. I think it was the heaviness of the petals rather than fatigue!

    • Thank you, Sheila. Yes: a nearby stately home and gardens has a wonderful collection of unusual tulips. I don’t think I have seen so many different ones before!

      Our Spring was very early this year; in fact we had such a mild Winter some of the plants didn’t go properly dormant. Hold on tight because as soon as Spring swings in over there, everything will begin to pop!
