Tulips...tulips...tulips...

Happy Earth Day!
 
Yesterday I posted the tulips in the morning with frost on them.....
Well of course after it warmed up and they opened their pretty little faces up to soak up some sunshine!
 I snapped a bunch of pictures off..I'm finally getting some enthusiasm for spring! I need to dress this area out yet with mulch.  I created it last fall in a typical rush...I seem to do everything in a rush!  I've got more in back but they aren't ready to bloom yet.
I bought tulips from a big box store last fall and I'm thrilled they came up but they are not all exactly the colors they were supposed to be. From now on though I'm going to stick to ordering from the best company I've gotten tulips from which is Dutch Gardens (and I've tried a few others).  I've always gotten top size bulbs and they come up beautifully and grow for years to come! 
These did pretty well for the first year.   I think I will add some grape hyacinths this fall in the foreground to get more impact!

  2. Your Tulips are lovely. I think the Hyacinths you want to add would really enhance things for you.

  5. Liz, Your tulips are really pretty! I agree that tulips are a perennial, but (in my garden at least), they often are short-lived. Larry had recommended the Darwin tulips as he says they have come up in his garden for over 20 years. It was great to visit you today, and I wish you a wonderful week!

  6. Hi Liz,

    Your tulips are gorgeous and there are so many of them! Beautiful pop of color and adding grape hyacinths would look fantastic.

  7. Beautiful Liz. They look lovely. I want to plant some in our yard.
    Thanks for the heads up about Dutch Gardens. It's that time of year to get out and work the gardens.
