Over the past weekend, I purchased some Tulip bulbs in anticipation for Spring gardening. I love all of the colour and beauty that appears in the garden in Autumn, but this can't always compare with the excitement I feel waiting for the Spring. I'm sure some of you can relate!
Here are the names and images (not taken by me) of some of the bulbs we have purchased. I have planted many of these in pots to overwinter, and have mulched them well with straw, fish emulsion and new soil. I can't wait to see what Spring brings!

|Lastly, something called 'Purple Mix' which only vaguely resembles this, but features two varieties of solid purple tulip (probably 'Negrita' and 'Queen of Night'), one solid white tulip, and a mottled lavender and white variety. I wish there were the Parrot tulips included, alas!|
