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.
