I took this photo of the Tulips together with the Mini-Daffs & the Crocuses in a square tub on our balcony February 2018

This Tulip is the first of my Tulips in the troughs on the balcony floor to start to flower. There are more in other troughs that have buds but they won’t open till after Easter passes, next week.

This is one of the first two Tulips to open in the square tub in the corner of the balcony. By some freakish accident it turns out that the two tulips that have opened in this tub are identical to the ones the local town council has planted in the flower bed in the gardens of our block of flats!

Here is the other Tulip that has now opened in the tub in the corner of the balcony. As you can see it’s the same as the first one I added. I’ll put a photo of the flower bed in gardens of our flats so you can see the coincidence of the planting!

Here then is a photo of the flower bed in the gardens of our block of flats. The Tulips, I saw the council gardeners actually plant them, have turned out to be exactly the same as some I planted in the square tub in the corner of the balcony! What a coincidence!
