Tuesday, May 18, 2010Tulips at Harlow Carr
On Monday my friends Lynda, Lena, Val, Jenny and I had a trip to the RHS Harlow Carr Harogate. The past two weeks had been the Tulip Festival but when we spoke to one of the volunteer gardeners she thought they were at there best now, and we thought they were looking stunning. They have planted 250,000 bulbs.This was the children's Victorian garden.
I loved the colour of this Tulip two tone.
All these colours together were very eye catching one of my favourite. The canes were in place ready for the sweet pea and a different structure from the usual tepee style.
This was the scented garden and although the hyacinths were past it there was still a lovely smell.There were lots of pots with varieties of TulipsThis newly planted hedge of apple line the new vegetable garden and look stunning with its blossom.This little plant was in the new Alpine House and much to everybody amusement was called VickyOne side of the Alpine House.
This was just a small spot in the wild flower garden.The fox gloves and pretty forget-me-nots growing in this conservatory along with the other flowers were a welcome sight
