La Belle Époque
One of my new favourite tulip varieties and this is the first year I’ve grown it at The Haven.
It has a fairly decent stem length and oh those petals… when they unfurl
I adore the way in which tulips continue to grow once cut, twisting and curling to reach the light.
Quite why anyone is obsessed with straight stems is beyond me, for when something moves freely and wild there are few things more beautiful.
