    ..thanks Nollie, I had almost forgotten I potted them up to be honest... I hope they return again next year.... I don't like bulbs in the ground too much these days.. pots are the way to go for me..

    They look wonderful! I have to say I’m going right off tulips in my border due to the leaves! The ones I have (can’t remember what they are!) are a fabulous flower but are so leafy- which may be due to the fact they are in the shade until about April, so I’m going to dig them up after they’ve finished and pot them as you have! Great idea!

    Some much more subdued tulips, my 'Angélique'...

    You are invited to a virtual visit of my garden (in English or in French).

    In a bag of mixed tulips both single and double this is the first to open. Double it almost looks like a peony .🙂

    ..enjoying the photos of tulips.. thanks so much.. hope we see some more... I don't have Angelique this year... such a pretty tulip... and I bet that yellow one is going to be a beauty..

    Bulbs in the ground just get in the way for me, I was always digging into them, chopping them to pieces and their foliage is a right mess that you have to look at for weeks before cutting down.... pots are my thing for all my bulbs now, they disappear behind my shed as soon as flowering is finished... out of sight, out of mind until the autumn.. and I have the garden free of bulbs so I can plant all sorts of other things without worrying about where they are... because you always forget don't you?... well I do..

    I have a separate bed for bulbs Anemones,  daffodils, tulips, and Allium. I let them do their thing and then later in summer an Aconite takes over with a tub of bedding plants in front
