Tulips, Snapdragons and Pansies

Colourful tulips, snapdragons and pansies

A bed of tulips underplanted with snapdragons, themselves underplanted by pansies, offered a subject too colourful to resist.

Tulips used as bedding plants

A dull, still day would have been less of a challenge, but I loved how the tulips glowed with the sun behind them and danced on the wind.

The flowers were grown as disposable bedding, valiantly playing their part in a sequence of plantings designed to brighten up a retail area.

While it is tempting to add pictures showing what became of them, for now at least, I’ll content myself with these cheerful ones.

  1. Those tulips look as though they are dancing. Impressive how they were planted for a retail area. Someone associated with the area must love flowers.

    1. I could have loitered there much longer, but it was directly outside a bank and I didn’t want people to think I had nefarious intentions.
