Grand Tulips


Every autumn, the gardeners at Grand Hotel make an investment in spring beauty...


...by planting an incredible display of tulip bulbs.

It's always a sign that the season is coming to an end, when the lush summer flowers become frost scorched and are removed, making way for an elaborate patterned planting of thousands of huge tulip bulbs. Those bulbs slumber away the winter and I'm always excited to see the first green tips emerge from the soil, for soon we will be viewing a new blaze of color.

And the cycle continues as they fade away and are in their turn replaced with the new summer plantings...
