Blogger has become increasingly frustrating to use, which is why I have not updated in months! I decided I wanted to share my tulips with you-These are only a few of them. I do have some planters that are not blooming well and some of the older ones are not quite ready yet. I'll add those with photos from previous years-
These are my second ones to bloom every year. I have two sets of red tulips-in this photo you can see the ones on the bottom are a bit different. I also have those star shaped tulips in a different part of the front bed. In this next (not able to be rotated) photo you can see the leaves are a different type as well.
These crinkled edge tulips look quite a bit like Audrey from Little Shop of Horrors!!!
I did clip (the next day, after another frost), a ton of the orange ones. I realised if I put them in a tall vase, you wouldn't be able to tell they were droopy! As you can see, the petals show definite frost damage, but they did open and close, so we enjoyed them inside for several days.
