2015 Tulips in our Yard (Part II)

On Monday,  I showed you Part I of our Tulip Collection in our yard.   Today,  I'll share the rest of them.  Most of these were taken along the upper side flowerbed and along the road...  As I said,  we had Tulips scattered all over the yard... So pretty!!!!!

Hope you enjoy this set also --and be sure to read Part I (below) --if you missed it.   Click on the pictures for enlargements.  AND---pick a 'fav'!!!!   The top picture is a beautiful red (with a touch of white) tulip (taken on 4/3/15) --and is located in two places in our yard,  beside the garage and also in the Road Flowerbed.


4/2/15;  Always a favorite of mine.;  These beauties are in the Road Flowerbed.  Last year,  the deer got some of them -but this year we SPRAYED Liquid Fence around the area!




4/4/15 on side;  Now look below at the same tulip a day later!



4/5/15;  One day later --the tulip above really opened up!!!!  Gorgeous Tulip!



4/5/15;  This is a huge yellow tulip on the side--and we had two of them that bloomed and bloomed! 



4/5/15;  There were three of these dark wine tulips --and they were along the driveway near the RedBud Tree.



4/11/15;  There were 4 of these little Tulips on the side (named Peppermint Stick);  When they are closed,  they do look like a peppermint stick...



4/7/15;  This multi-colored Tulip was on the side.  It had several colors: rose, pink, white--and changed colors as it opened! 



4/11/15;  This was one of our late-bloomers ---but OH HOW GORGEOUS.  We had three of these and they were located near our mailbox...  Love those colors!



4/10/15;  I love this 'pointy' tulip on the side.  It is part of the group of four different tulips pictured as a group in my Part I post.



4/8/15;  This pretty pink tulip (on the side) started out very pale pink and got darker as it aged.  It is also one of the group of four (pictured in Part I).



4/7/15;  this 'pointy' orange tulip (in the side bed) is also a part of the group of four (pictured in Part I). 



4/8/15;  This is the last of the group of four tulips in our side flowerbed --pictured in Part I. 
The tulip above is a favorite of mine.  At first glace, you'd think it was the same tulip that I posted at the end in Part I ---but if you put these two side-by-side,  you can tell the difference.  Amazing Tulips for sure!!!!!

NOW---do you have a favorite????  My favorites in 2015 were:  1.  Purple/White Multi in Part I;  2.  White ones with a touch of yellow--listed second from the top above;  3.  the  gorgeous orange/yellow tulips near the mailbox (5th one above);  and 4/5----the yellow/red multis pictured at the end of both Part I and Part II.

Have a fantastic week and weekend.   We are headed home from several days at Ocean Isle Beach.   I'll begin to catch up with your posts as soon as I have a minute... Thanks for being patient with me and my crazy schedule.

Hugs to all,

Bicolors are always fun. I like them the best, but see you have a variegated leaf on the wine colored that is fun also. I added a lot of purple and pink last year.

They are all so pretty. I have only red. I can see that I need to branch out and get some different colours. Safe trip.

Linda Kay said...

The variegated ones are my favorites.

Heidrun Khokhar, KleinsteMotte said...

For some strange reason this spring I'm drawn to all things pink.
I think your collection is stunning. Your maintain such a lovely garden.

Serenity Cove said...

Betsy, this makes me so jealous. The deer ate most of mine. I usually keep them sprayed but this spring the weather was so cold and I was sick I couldn't get out to do it.
I have some planted in among daffodils and they very carefully ate all the tulips off and left all the daffodils!

Nellie said...

The pinks are always my favorites, Betsy. They are all gorgeous, though! xo Nellie

Sylvia K said...

Gorgeous, colorful tulips, Betsy!! I love them all!! Hope you have a beautiful and very happy weekend!!

Dr. Kathy McCoy said...

They're all so beautiful, it's hard to pick a favorite, but I really love the last one picture. What a glorious spring you're having with your garden!

Fun60 said...

They are all so beautiful. I just think it is a shame that they do not last longer. I was away for 10 days and completely missed my tulips in flower.

Ginny said...

ALL beautiful! But maybe my favorite is the last one, just like it is yours too!

Janice K said...

Our tulips here I think have finally all opened. I hope they last for awhile.

You have so many different ones. I have enjoyed your pictures.

Betsy said...

I just can't choose one of these. They are all so lovely. I like the one with stripes. I can only imagine the beauty of your yard and home Betsy. Thank you for sharing with us.
Blessings,
Betsy

Ruth Hiebert said...

Terri D said...

How can anyone pick just one favorite?! They are all beautiful!! My oh my, they are beautiful.

Chatty Crone said...

It is hard to pick a favorite - I usually love pink - but the pointed orange/yellow one sure looked pretty too!

Susie Swanson said...

Oh my, those are all so beautiful I could never pick one certain one out. Hope ya'll have a safe trip home and glad you're getting away from that storm. Hugs, xo

Ann Thompson said...

I can't really say I have a favorite, I like them all, but that peppermint stick one caught my eye

Arkansas Patti said...

They are all beautiful but for me you saved the best for last. Wow.

LV said...

Betsy glad you both are still able to be out and about. Never have had tulips. Yours are absolutely gorgeous.

Kay said...

It's hard to choose a favorite but that huge yellow one really caught my eye.

Small Kucing said...

They are so beautiful, Betsy.

Wish we could plant it here too.

Margie's Musings said...

Those are all lovely, Betsy! How I miss my beautiful flowerbeds!

Vanessa Morgan said...

So many pretty pictures. It's difficult to pick a favorite. Maybe the wine tulip for its fantastic color.

Latane Barton said...

Beautiful tulips. And, you have such a variety. Are you as much a gardener as George? Two green thumbs are better than one.

Rose said...

I could never pick a favorite...though if forced one I would really consider is the dark wine colored one in this post. But then when I see the others, I don't think I could pick just one. I love the red and yellow ones, and I love that late bloomer in this post.

ladyfi said...

Wowza -so gorgeous!

DeniseinVA said...

Daisy said...

You have so many colors and kinds, Betsy! They are all beautiful. Happy Mother's Day to you!

Beatriz said...

You have tulips, oh.... They're so beautiful and fragile! I think your yard is something... from another world! Thanks for showing so many beauties!!!

A big hug Betsy!

Bia <°))))<

Linda said...

Oh my! So do you have more varieties of tulips, or roses?

Deb said...

I love tulips. I don't think they do so well here in Arizona. Thanks so much for sharing the pictures. Happy Mother's Day to you!

Joy said...

I just love them all. I am still waiting for ny few tulips to bloom:)

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Your blooms are gorgeous! I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day! I am hunkered down after another tornado warning. I am so tired of this bad weather. I hope it misses y'all!

diane b said...

Oooh I like the dark wine tulip.

Marie C said...

Just love these beautiful tulips! Wow! You have such a variety! I couldn't possibly chose a favorite.

Annesphamily said...

Sigh, so pretty and colorful!

Twilight Man said...
