Blossoms and Blooms!

A longer view of the bed by the driveway

I think these tulips are so showy!

These parrot tulips are showy as well.

This is a golden elder.

Our Magnolia is starting to bloom.

Aren't these pretty?

I like the fringe tulips also.

I think these are Shirley and the dark ones are Queen of the Night.

Virginia bluebells are so pretty I would like them to spread around the garden,

I decided to add some punch to the garden-so I spray painted this blue.

This is a pear tree in blossom.

The lilacs are almost blooming!

I know I said I would show the cottage today but it is not quite ready yet. I am having fun doing the little touches now. Come back tomorrow and I will share it with you!
Take care,

Oh Carolyn,
That is simply stunning. I don't think I have ever seen so many kinds of tulips. Are those forget-me-nots in the mix too? I love how you have everything planted. I have my eyes on your garden and am paying close attention. I am just a simple student and you are the Master gardener!

When do you start garden tours? My mom, myself and a friend want to come. Do you have a website with more info such as time, place, etc.?

Beautiful blooms! And I also loved your pictures of Emily and Lila ~ how precious!

Adorable tulips. I love every single one. This year the large heads on our tulips were so heavy with rain the stems bent over and the heads fell to the floor. Disaster!

Be Still My Heart. I adore Tulips - my very favorite flower. Oh I have missed your garden photos.

Your tulips are so beautiful. Too hot here for them so they don't do so good. But oh, how I enjoy yours.
