Warmest day so far
Posted Fri 19 April 2019 in garden
Today it reached 17C which is the warmest day this year, tomorrow is likely to be warmer still. I started wonerdering how many warmest days there will be this year. So far there have been 9: on the 4 Jan 2019, 6 Jan 2019, 7 Jan 2019, 15 Feb 2019, 21 Feb 2019, 22 Feb 2019, 20 Mar 2019, 21 Mar 2019 and today.
There are several of the second set of daffodils now out. These are supposed to be N. 'February gold', but they are clearly not. When these first open they have a lemony yellow center, which then turns to a creamy orange. There are also a case where a single stem has two flowers, although they are mostly single.
The photo also shows all three of the Tulipa schrenkii and one of my Tiarella 'Spring symphony'.
All of the Tulipa kolpakowskiana at the back are now open as is one at the front. I could have done with a bigger group of these ones.
