Tulips in January?

Oh dear.  Its been over a year since I posted anything on the blog. Tut tut. But rather than offer up any excuses I’m just going to show you a picture of a tulip bulb that we brought in from the cold a couple of weeks ago, which had started to sprout but hadn’t been planted deep enough in the ground.
I’m glad we did as although it had been extremely mild up until Christmas, on the 27th December we had 30-40cm of snow and the temperatures plummeted to -8C.

Two days ago, this little beauty flowered.
