I told you a took a lot of photos at Butchart Gardens. The tulips were in full bloom, mass plantings everywhere. Drifts of pink, fuschia, white and red.
The underplantings were just as lovely as the tulips. Clouds of forget-me-nots.
I snuck a few hyacinths in as well. They were clustered all along the first walkway into the gardens, perfuming the air with their lovely scent.
Another tulip bed, pinks and purples, underplanted with white bellis daisies.
Yellow and blue, a classic and lovely combination.
In God, for your part?--that He who makes
Can make good things from ill things, best from worst,
As men plant tulips upon dunghills when
They wish them finest.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Aurora Leigh
