The tulips and cherry blossom in my garden are out!
Whenever I'm in Amsterdam, I make sure I buy lots of tulip bulbs, all with exotic pictures on the front and promises of unusual show-stopping blooms in exciting colour combinations. This includes the thrillingly named 'Queen of the Night', a black tulip. I've lost count of the number of 'Queen of the Night' bulbs I've tucked under the soil in my garden over the years. And every spring, I wait for them to come up.
So....spot any black tulips...?
Still, my plain old red and yellow tulips are proving to be willing and co-operative models as usual, and this week I'll be painting some more canvasses like this...
