Violas and my first tulips of the season

by Wendy Syddall

Just a quick post today. I just noticed my first tulips in pots flowering so thought I’d post my pictures. I think one of these is ‘orange emperor’ and the other ‘cilesta’ but I’m not aura which is which as one is open and other closed. I have a number of other tulips so will post them as they flower. 

Also 2 pictures of violas in pots, both with funny stories. The first pot has been on top of the water butt in the front garden for months and one day I went out and found the whole plant on the ground and the pot a few feet away. It turns out that storm Doris had blown the plant out! The other pot is actually primulas but violas have grown in there instead.
