Bright & Beautiful5th December 2010 • Stephanie's Blog • Stephanie Donaldson
Last Monday was a bright and (relatively) warm day, which was fortunate as I had arranged for some help in the garden from Shane who never seems to mind what the weather is like or what we do. We set to and got most of the tulips that were destined for the Courtyard into their allotted containers. This is the area devoted to the oranges, reds and yellows that look decidedly brassy elsewhere in the garden. My favourite new tulip last year was the browny-bronze ‘Cairo’ so I’m planting it again along with another newcomer ‘Brown Sugar’ as well as my favourite fragrant varieties ‘General de Wet’ and the lily-flowered ‘Ballerina’ which is my desert island tulip.
