Planting Bulbs. December 2015.

Out in the garden I’ve been braving some ghastly weather in order to plant 120 tulip bulbs to photograph next spring. ¬†The bulbs in the image below are Antraciet and El Nino, but others will include varieties such as Blumex, Rai, Flaming Spring Green and Orange Princess. Inspired by Hortus Botanicus in Amsterdam and the stunning specimens of the Dutch Tulip Mania in the 1600s described in paintings and illustrations of the time, I’ll be working on individual and group plant studies from early April.
