At last a tulip has opened.

By pentaxpatty
Hello and good morning to one and all.

At last a tulip has opened in the garden, a few are bashed down with the snow but I am sure I planted a lot and they might come if the rain stops and we get a few hours of sunshine.

Thank you all so much for your wonderful comments and votes and very special user awards , you are all so kind. A special mention to Kate and Phil (overthehillphil) and Lin sweetpea for their treasured awards.

Have a good day today.

Love and light Patty xxSmileSmile

Very nice dof Patty and lovely colours.
I have a pot full of tulips which I thought would look nice together. Red, / yellow and red / and mainly yellow with a touch of red. Unfortunately, the plain red have bloomed and on their last legs just as the others are ready to open Sad Oh well, the thought was thereSmile
