My tulips are bursting this year! We had some warmer sunny weather this week, which made the garden go bananas.
I leaned over the side of the porch and the perfume of lily of the valleys just wafted up and I saw a big cluster of them. I am just amazed how how fragrant such tiny fairy flowers can be!
Our house is over 100 years old, so there are some old fashioned flowers that were in existence here, like the LOTV. I just let them grow wherever they feel like popping up. I am kind of a casual gardener 😀
The Shirley. This is a new one for me.
The purple blush starts at the very tip and spreads further down the petals each day. I am very taken with this one! This one is amidst the Apricot Impressions.
The Queen of the Night and Ice Princess. The Ice Princess are still a bit yellow looking until they mature a little bit.
The Queen of the Nights are not really black, but the deepest, darkest color of purple, which looks pretty much black.
For the life of me, I cannot find the name of these, which I have had for a few years now. They are such a lovely deep red color.
Another new one is the Passionale.
For those that want to get bulbs, I buy mine from John Scheepers, which come from Holland. I have never, ever been disappointed with the quality or price.
Seeing these just makes me want to dance around. Maybe I was some kind of garden nymph or butterfly in the past or something
There is one more set of tulips that haven’t opened yet. I don’t know if they are more of the ones already open or something different. Guess we will find out in a few day!
And we now have a pocket door in the half bath! Hooray for privacy 😀
Hope you enjoyed the tulip tour!
