At a friend’s suggestion I signed up to the Blooming Green newsletter last year. I can’t usually make their regular picking sessions on a Friday afternoon through the summer.
Luckily for me an impromptu PYO coincided with the Easter hols so I was able to drive over to see a friend nearby and have someone to hold my bucket while the picking got underway.
It was a lovely sunny afternoon and we came home laden with flowers. It’s amazing how much you can fit into such a small container – and certainly good value at £10 a go.
I kept my picking palette primarily to pinks and purples. As well as tulips, we picked hellebores and cerinthe, a small amount of foliage and some seed heads.
The softer pinks and whites that crept into the bucket looked lovely together, as did the separate jar of jewel-like anemones and grape hyacinth.
The tulips looked even better on day two, as the blooms started to open.
I love tulips – what’s your spring favourite?
