|Chanticleer gardens in Wayne, PA|
|The Tea Cup garden with spring bedding.|
|Railing for the step down from the Tea Cup garden to the "Lower Courtyard" garden.|
|Yellow and pink tulips under the glowing maple tree, Acer negundo 'Kelly's Gold'.|
This area seems to be simply known as the "Lower Courtyard," as it is below the Tea Cup garden. Not much to its name, but it contained one of the best displays of tulips at Chanticleer last spring. In the rough grass (which I loved here, though it might be called weedy), there were giant yellow tulips, pink-tipped tulips and white daffodils.
|These tulips varieties seemed to me to be Tulipa 'Antoinette', a multi-flowering tulip with raspberry edges, and Tulipa 'Golden Parade', a large, vibrant yellow Darwin hybrid.|
|Lovely sculpting to an otherwise "wild garden" planting of bulbs in rough grass.|
|An old native dogwood, Cornus florida, is skirted with bold butterbur leaves. An iron seat and a nearby pot with flowers and red stems begs to be enjoyed on this April day.|
|Just around the corner of the house you can see its beautiful balconies overhead...|
|Pretty container arrangements are in every free space at Chanticleer. Here on the west side of the house are yellow Violas and columbine (Aquilegia) to accompany the yellow tulips for the spring season.|
|Another nice place for a sit to enjoy the tulip display which is beautifully edged with the yellow Japanese forest grass, Hakonechloa aureola.|
