Throwback Thursday: Tulip fields

Fife years ago, I was at a tulip farm for the first time. They grow the flowers but cut the blossoms right after they went up. The goal is to get the onions to sell them. In the image you can see rows of still blooming tulips as well as row with tulips where the blossom is already cut.

Take care!

Throwback Thursday: Lavender in winter

 

We have some lavender plants in our garden. Every fall the plants seem to die. All the blossoms wither and the twigs shrivel. Thus, we trim them usually. But, we start trimming not earlier but the blossoms are withered.

This year this particular plant (although we have it already for some years) wasn’t interested to stop blooming. Even in December, when we got some snow, they didn’t stop. And now, in February, they are still blooming. What a surprise!

Take care!
