Spring Growth

An actual tulip!
First one! And grown without having to spend time in the fridge. Yes, winter is cold enough for tulips here. There are lots more to come (minus a few that the cockatoos got to) planted in groups around the garden, but this was just a single bulb. The colour is quite gorgeous. The camera really has not done it justice.

There are a couple of clumps of these covered in buds. This is the first one to open.

There are a few clumps of these, too. Lots of colour still to come.

This one is not outside:
It's a nasturtium seedling. I've planted a couple of hanging baskets with trailing nasturtiums, but because there is still a high chance of frost the baskets are in the greenhouse for now.
