cornwall in colours: golden yellow

More tulips I’m afraid. Along with some other yellows in my garden at the moment.

West Point Lily-flowering tulips

I wasn’t sure about these pure yellow lily-flowered tulips when I first saw them opening, but they have definitely grown on me. Their star-shape flower when fully open in the sun is striking.

When the sun shines through the tulips they look like glowing goblets.  Particularly noticeable in this pot below (Whittallii, Brown Sugar and Ballerina)

But also under the Willow tree this Epimedium catches the light and not only do the tiny orange flowers glow, but also the new leaves.

Whilst we are confined to #StayAtHome I will be posting photos from around my house and garden to hopefully cheer us all up.

    The colours look absolutely stunning! 🙂 I am so glad that I was directed here from this post, lest I would have missed these gorgeous tulips.

    I have a soft spot for epimediums but have never noticed them acting like this. The leaves seem to be holding out little cups.

  4. I love tulips Jude and the colours are bright and uplifting 🙂
