My spring flowers are blooming, and the garden looks lovely.
However, a great mystery lies before me and I'm unsure how to explain it.
You see, when I planted this garden, I picked my flowers carefully and decided upon the huge and unusual Queen of Night variety of tulip.I thought it would make for interesting contrast. And every year they've been beautiful. If not quite as black as the photo shows....more of a nice burgundy.
But this spring, I'm seeing something really unexpected. A new tulip. One I've never planted. And one that seems an unlikely product of cross polination. How on earth did this happen?
