|Tulip 'Princess Irene' and Tulip 'Cum Laude' with Spirea 'Goldflame' and forget-me-nots (Myosotis)|
The dark purple Tulip 'Cum Laude' have returned for their third year running in this area, once a combination with Tulip 'Shirley', a beauty in white with purple edging (see it in May 2011). I love shorter Tulip 'Princess Irene' (or Tulip 'Prinses Irene') in this garden, as it has so many color echoes... orange calling the the early foliage of Spirea 'Goldflame' and purple flames to match Tulip 'Cum Laude'. Bright blue forget-me-nots (Myosotis) make a great filler for tulips and add to the color punch.
|A street corner filled with color! The Front Walk and then the Front Woodland below planted up with a sea of forget-me-nots (Myosotis). An urn of Tulip 'Ballerina' sit by the tree just feet from the pavement.|

|There were a few white Anemone blanda sitting at the base of Tulip 'Princess Irene' just a few weeks ago, before the forget-me-nots ate them... which is mostly ok with me as I know that they are bound to do that in their exuberance. Photo April 16th.|
