Oh, I’ve got a yellow one!

I got some tulips on the January sale, which I knew might not go with the purple theme in the front garden. But pink isn’t exactly a clash is it?

What I hadn’t expected was a yellow tulip. However, one such bulb evidently found its way into the box of the pink varieties, the upshot of which is as below. It may not be in line with the colour scheme but it brings its own charm.

The colours above remind me of those I’ve seen in many windows since the lockdown started. I’ve not wanted to photograph private houses but, when I was walking to buy some provisions later in the day, I noticed the windows of a pub which were suitably decorated.

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.

    The yellow will lift the other colours and the effect will be lovely. Love the pub window- our wine bar has opted to whitewash the whole window- I guess they are worried about burglars.

  2. The odd splash of an unexpected colour will make the scheme more interesting I think. yellow goes with everything.
