Wordless Wednesday: Tulip Festival


  1. Thanks Clint :)

    They're at Dyrham Park - we visited over the Easter Holiday. They have a tulip festival there for the whole of April.

  2. I love absolutely everything about this picture. The colours are beautiful together and the warm sandstone of the house just sets them off. Never been to Dyrham Park, but I'm definitely putting it on my list now...

  3. A tulip festival!
    Happy Wordless Wednesday!

  4. Gorgeous display...love how the white tulips accent the other colors...looks like pansies...

  5. Hannah - welcome! It's well worth a visit :)

    Lea - Dyrham Park has lots of Delft pottery, including vases designed specifically for displaying tulips.

    Donna - well spotted, pansies are part of the display :)

    Dyrham Park tweeted me yesterday to say the the white tulips will be replaced by red ones. There's a succession of different tulips planted in the beds to prolong the display. Clever stuff :)

  6. It looks lovely. Much better to admire the result of someone else doing the hard work. I am much too lazy to do that kind of planting (assuming I had any space to do it in!)

  7. citybumpkin - lovely to see you again Rach and congratulations on City Bump number 2!

    EG - I went to The Organic Garden at Holt Farm on Friday and there's a fab bulb display there too. Great to see the results there as they were just putting the bulb order in when I last visited in August!
