Tulips in our Yard 2010 (Part II)


If you missed Part I of our 2010 Tulips, click
HERE. As I said yesterday, we have had 15 different varieties of TULIPS in our yard this year. They lasted about 2 weeks, give or take. They may have lasted longer if it weren't for Mother Nature and all of those high winds she gave us last weekend. Oh Well!!! Above is a very pretty Tulip, appropriately called APRICOT BEAUTY. Below are more!




This pretty white tulip is named PURISSIMA.




Here's a new tulip for us this year, called TOWERING PRISM.





This one is named SUN GOLD. I love the hint of red around the edges.




ORANGE EMPEROR





GUINEVERE




HALLEY'S COMET





And finally, here is ALL THAT JAZZ. It looks a little like Peppermint Stick from yesterday--but is a much larger tulip.

Hope you enjoyed seeing all of our different 2010 Tulips in our yard. We now have Azaleas, Irises and Rhododendrons blooming... SO--there will be more flower pictures upcoming.

Have a fabulous Thursday.
Hugs,

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,

Life is a Tulip


As I've mentioned several times before, our Tulips this year are probably more beautiful than they have ever been. I have several posts upcoming, showing the Tulips --so today, I'll start with a few of our pictures.

We have most of the Tulips in our side flowerbed --but there are some in the new flowerbed near the road. And--there are a few near the garage door. I haven't counted the total number we have ---but there are LOTS of them.. Above is a picture of the side flowerbed. In this bed are what's left of our Daffodils and many Tulips. Below are more pictures of our Tulips.




These Tulips are called PURISSIMA.




All of these pinkish Tulips are named LIGHT AND DREAMY.




From left to right: PURISSIMA, BIG SMILE, PURISSIMA and HALEY'S COMET




Here's another picture of the side bed -from the other direction. I wish all of you could be here to see all of these colors.

A couple of people say that my blog is hard to load on Blogger... SO---I've lowered the number of pictures from 8 to 5... IF this helps, please let me know. I want everyone to be able to read my blog. Thanks!

Hope you had a good Wednesday. George and I are 'happy campers' now since both of us got excellent reports from our doctor yesterday. We had had all of our lab work done a week ago--so yesterday was 'getting the report' day!!!! Hallelujah... We did GREAT....

This time of year, since we are so busy doing yardwork, I have decided to follow what many of you are already doing. I won't post a blog on Saturday or Sunday for awhile--but I will try to visit your blogs when I have time during the weekends.

Hugs,
