Tulipa “Black Parrot”
I must admit I was rather disappointed when I saw the buds of this Tulip pop up in early Spring.
Bulbs that I had picked up from a nursery in the Blue Mountains, the pictures captivated me at once.
But alas the bulbs didn’t deliver, or so I thought.
I almost ripped them out too, but for some reason I decided to leave them in the ground,
hoping that perhaps they may develop some more colour when they opened fully.
Then some time later as I was coming home from a day out,
Looking at my garden as I always do,
I noticed them, so exotic and sultry the colours of this tulip are just out of this world.
