In our new garden there's a mystery flower...

The red one is of course a tulip and there are loads of them and wall
flowers too. I really don't know what the top one is though. They look
as if they are made of paper but that doesn't come across in the photo.
Any suggestions most welcome.

It's also a tulip; Dasystemon (Tulipa Tarda)

Ah ha. A tulip in disguise! Now if it were Tulipa Tardis that would be more fitting here :) Hope you're settling in OK in the new place.

Why thank you hildegard. When I first saw them I thought they were tulips that had opened out to reveal their middles like they sometimes do. I can't remember ever seen this variety before yet many of the gardens around here contain them.

Thanks SB. I thought *Tardis* too!

Yes we all love it here even though it is very isolated. So different from the South London streets I have walked all my life.....
