A Week Of Flowers 2021, Day 1

In desperate need of some sunshine and a reminder of warmer days today on what has been day of mainly gusty wind and intermittent heavy rain, here is a pot of tulip 'Ballerina' taken this spring. A much better photo of the pot I'm afraid rather than the tulips but they provided a rather lovely glow of colour and the addition of scent too. As you can see an interloper crept in - I'm not sure how. I'm must confess removing it not long afterwards. Not the biggest fan of tulips I was most pleased with this effort which waved at me when I was at the kitchen sink. Thanks to Cathy over at 'Words and Herbs' ,whose lovely idea it is to celebrate a week of flowers to brighten up these sometimes dark and dismal days of December. Do visit Cathy's blog and see what what flowers she is sharing today and also check out the blogs of other participants. 


  1. A wonderful sight to see from indoors on a chilly spring day! I love Ballerina too and have been growing them for years now. (A nice pot too by the way!) Thanks for joining in Anna. Lovely to see your colourful pot.

    1. Thanks Cathy. She is a lovely tulip before and one that I've planted before in combinations but never on her own. I was most pleased with the result 😄

  2. I haven't grown 'Ballerina' but have admired it on various blogs. Yours look so lovely and the odd one seems immensely charming!

  3. I'm glad that you like the odd one out Susie. I felt quite guilty when I removed it 😢


All your comments are much appreciated and treasured. I wil try to reply to everyone who leaves a comment, but it may take me a few days, especially when I start spending more time in the garden and at the lottie. I know that you will understand :) I am sure that I will also visit your blog if I have not already done so. If you have any specific questions I will either reply to them here or you can email me at :
