MORE TULIPS

These red beauties have been getting taller and taller every day. They're actually dwarfing the daffodils.

We have just a few of these variegated ones, they don't seem to be very hardy here.

The white and magenta is absolutely striking against the green autumn crocus foliage. These are actually about two thirds the size of the big red ones. Lovely to come home to in the evenings.

I love tulips.  The tulip is my favorite flower behind iris.  I always have to stop and catch my breath when I see a proud purple iris.  My dad's tulips got knocked pretty flat by strong wind...that's the flat prairie for ya.

The husband that died loved tulips so they always remind me of him. Very pretty.--Cin

We did have a lovely spring until this massive storm came through and flattened everything. :-(  I have tulip stalks with no petals.
