Tulips in our Yard 2010 (Part I)


The Tulips are all gone in our yard now (sigh!)---but I wanted to share some macros of our 15 different varieties of TULIPS. I'll post the pictures in two parts and will keep the pictures small. IF you want to see any of them up close and personal, just click on the pictures to enlarge them. George took most of these with his macro lens. Above is one that we have had in our yard for several years and is always a favorite, RED DYNASTY. Below are more!



BRIGHT PINK LADY




BIG SMILE




PEPPERMINT STICK (Look at the next one now--while remembering the name of this Tulip!)



PEPPERMINT STICK again----See how it got its name?????




LIFE'S A CABERNET




LIGHT AND DREAMY




MARDI GRAS

I'll post Part II tomorrow. I think we had the best group of Tulips this year that we have ever had. I hope the Irises (which are beginning to bloom now) and the Lilies and Daylilies will all be as pretty as the Tulips have been.

Thanks for wishing me well --with my 'tummy bug'... Luckily, it moved away (hopefully NOT to George)...

Hugs,
