The more I visit Helmsley Walled Garden, the more I love it. Today was the first time I had been in the spring and I wasn’t to be disappointed.
Look at the spectacular tulips in a meadow (with Helmsley Castle in the background).
And here is a view of the same meadow from a different angle.
These tulips are a must-have for me. In the autumn I will therefore search for some in these colours, which should suit my daughter with her pink obsession as well.
Another display of flowers which particularly caught my eye was a row of alliums. A pity they don’t seem to grow in my own garden, although there is the possibility the bulbs were simply duds. Perhaps I should try again.
On the other hand, there is no doubt that strawberries love my soil. When we went out this morning, they were already looking quite perky. But this evening upon returning home, the flowers on them had come out, so the back garden is truly full of blossom.
What a feast of fruit we’ll be having in a short while!
