Tulips Still Came On

Wednesday 15th May 2019

The tulips have just finished. Somehow I managed to have them this year inspite of everything (not auto-correct, ‘inspite’ is not wrong!)

A little relief that they’re over,  for now the garden can calm down. Funny how the first flowers are the loudest, especially the tulips. There’s nothing like them. Just screaming, ‘I’m a flower so f..ck awff!’

Only a handful will dominate the garden. Two years ago the Gay Mother had 20 Appeldorn, bought for her by me. She was horrified at the quantity. Appeldorn is a very old variety, bright red. She contrived four clumps of five and they just glared. Her large garden was fully illuminated by twenty red tulips. I think it’s bad at Dixter where they plant billions of them in one pot, all crowded together. They must be separated.

As always entirely the wrong ones came up. Not what was ordered. A bit like Glawdys Cooper being simply marvellous in that play by Noel Coward except entirely the wrong lines.
