Even more tulips

When Nino and I had a little walk last week we called at the local flower shop (by local I mean across the road, Nino doesn’t walk far these days but still enjoys a little outing) and chose some fresh flowers for the house. I did look at other flowers but the tulips came home with us. The local shop gets fresh flowers delivered from Holland at least twice a week so they are fresh and always beautiful. There were lots of tulips, pink, white, yellow and red and then there were some peony tulips, not the pretty pale pink like I had a week or two ago but a deep cerise pink with multiple heads on each stem.

As the petals opened I realised that the insides are yellow at the base with purple stamens. They are fabulous, so bright and colourful. I defy anyone not to feel more cheerful when they see them.
