The Walled Garden at Mells, Somerset

This year I went for some rather flamboyant tulip pot combos in shades of orange, red, purple and pink. I never managed to get a decent photo of them as they never all looked good at the same time, flopped in the sun or flopped in the rain. But overall I was pretty pleased with them, and they certainly gave a blaze of colour in an otherwise bare garden.

Then I saw these pure white tulips (I think they might be ‘White Triumphator’) at the Walled Garden at Mells. They really stood out among the emerging perennials, and looked quietly magnificent. So much so that a stray red tulip nearby looked positively garish. Maybe I’ll go for a more muted palette next year…
