The new Almond trees at the far end of the paddock are full of blossom, looking so pretty and miraculously all the blossom has survived through the gale force winds and frosty mornings of the past few days.
What has not survived and is looking horribly sad and stunted is this poor Tulip, and in this case it's not the wind or frost to blame.

It was one of these lovely Parrot Tulips .....
... as were it's friends.
Luckily we got to see and very briefly enjoy the first one at it's best the day before the rabbits found them. I went back to take a photo of it but the stunted little remains were all that was left by the next day.
Now that the
bl**dy fluffy bunnies have eaten all the tulips that were in flower, the little sods are starting on the daffodils ... I hope they get tummyache.
Ravaged beyond help.
One left ... it'll be gone by tomorrow.
Did any of you spot the tail in the first picture, yes it was Ginger, joining us on the doggy walk last night after tea. I always think lush green grass sets of his colouring wonderfully. He's a handsome and wonderfully happy chappy at the moment.
