I had no idea it would be so beautiful. Louise sketched at the edge of the sea of colour, squatting in the path of instagrammers, while I wandered up and down accidentally filling my shoes with the dusty soil. We bought 99s from the ice cream van and ate them in the sun.
It’s a thing, Tulips for Tapping, a brilliant thing organised annually to raise money for Tapping House, a hospice in Norfolk that gives end of life care. The field is open for two weeks at the end of April/beginning of May, it’s a short window of opportunity (such is the life of a tulip flower) but if you can’t make it, you can always buy a tea towel.
If you’d like to keep up with what I’m up to work-wise (talks, events, exhibitions, that kind of stuff), you can find my Agenda on my website. And, if you’d like occasional updates about all sorts of other nice things, in your inbox, you can join my mailing list here.
