I'm really, really liking the latest results in my tulip border. Those 50 Blue Aimables I planted here are joined by what can never be predicted - occasional repeaters from previous years' designs. The key just may be to, of course, try something new every year but all within a compatible mix of colors. So here you see assorted China Pinks and Cum Laudes and Esthers popping with the Blue Aimables.
I can promise you more photos where this came from - when the tulips will have the blooms of azaleas, viburnums and weigelas as their background. I'm just being impatient to show you these now.
