These tulips were free bulbs given away with the pear tree that we bought late last year. I was late planting them - I think it was well into the new year, so I am happy that they've come up so well. Whenever I see them, I have to look twice as they look almost like wooden imitation tulips, they stand so straight and upright.
I love the way tulips open and close with the sunshine. These are pink on the outside, and when they start to open, a yellow middle is revealed.
When the sun is shining, the really open up to show their yellow centres.
There's nothing like a free gift, is there?
