I'm laughing, Laura!

and that is a perfection of a tulip, everything a tulip ought to be when one thinks "tulips"

I try not to think of thistles tho...but I'm afraid the dandies are such a welcome sight in springtime that I don't begrudge them being!

Glad I gave you a laugh Liz ... you have given me so many .. :D

The tulips are a favourite of mine,I did make a mistake in planting most of them at the front of the house ...not enough sun and they are miserable so will be dug up and moved to sunnier quarters....I have LEARNED from the great peoples here !

The thistle I believe is one of those large wonderful ones with the purple flowers when in bloom .... B dug a rather large one out of the garden ... I wanted to keep it but it was in the way said he.


....there is another one hidden next to the butterfly bush that he has not spotted yet .... :lol:
