I wondered if Asahi tulips were named after a beer, for their lovely golden tones, but no. Much more appropriately it’s ‘morning/rising sun’. And they are absolutely stunning seen in the early morning with the sun shining through them, but I was too busy running until the sun was setting, so here they are in the last light of day.
A couple years ago I planted 300 narcissi of different types, and the best thing about that is the variety of daffodils which flower over a long period of time.
As I caught sight of the house I realise the colours we chose last time we painted are the same as the flowers.
Check in at Rambling in the Garden for more vases and flowers and consider joining in.

Oh! Cath, your vase quite took my breathe away. Spring captured in a vase, so beautiful and full of hope.
Thank you Christina. I have really enjoyed it this week. It has been a ‘welcome home’ from long and busy days.
The tulips definitely glow – and of your course the whole vase looks especially perfect next to the matching paint! It is so refreshing to see your spring bulbs from the other side of the world and it is great to have you with us on this meme – thanks for sharing
Thanks Cathy, I love being part of this meme, thanks for hosting.
Glorious spring bouquet, Cath! I love that your flowers match your house. 🙂
Thank you Eliza 🙂 There is a lot of gold and orange in this house, inside as well. It makes a nice glow on grey days.
Such a great colour the tulip you chose and I like how it picks up the yellow tones in the daffodils and I really like how you have painted the wall the same tone.Beautiful.
I’m glad you like it too. Inspired by Christina’s vases last year I bought quite a variety and this is the one I like best.
Glorious daffs and tulips! My favorite is the apricot daffodil with the deeper orange-red cup. I love the color of your house, like a sunset. It’s fun seeing spring flowers when it is almost fall here, Cath.
Thanks Hannah, I love that one too, it’s called ‘Rondel’. It’s an NZ bred one so I’m not sure if it’s available further afield.
Lovely! Especially with the last rays of sunlight. Such pretty colours. 🙂
