Purple reigns in my garden right now:
But as pretty as these beauties are, there's another purple that's caught my eye. Well, actually the combination of purple - with yellow. I posted recently about the combination of my pink creeping phlox and muscari:
I thought that was just the perfect combination. But, the combination of 'Emerald Blue' creeping phlox with yellow tulips is just as sweet.
Or do you like the combination of purple scabiosa and yellow tulips better?
Are you surprised to see tulips in Texas? I was!
I planted these tulips last year as an annual. It's too hot here for tulips to return well, if at all. And I'm too lazy to dig them up and replant them every year. But surprise! They not only returned, but they are blooming better this year than last! Their return is probably due to being in a raised bed, and the cool days and cold nights we've had lately.
I guess that's one thing I should be thankful for due to our delayed spring!
