My Favorite Tulip Photos

Thank you everyone for all your kind words yesterday on being published in Country and Country. Today I wanted to share some of my favorite tulip photos that I took recently in our garden.

So have a cup of tea and enjoy. This pretty teacup has the Lady's Slipper on it which is the flower emblem for P.E.I.

This is the peony flowered Angelique which is one of my favorite tulips. It is a late flowering one and just coming into bloom here now.

These parrot tulips are very showy.

I love the softness of Angelique with the peachy daffodils behind it. Well ,that is all for today but tomorrow I will show the hillside garden and Martha's garden as they are filling in nicely with spring color.

Thank you for visiting,

Carolyn your tulips are stunning. I lost many this Winter to voles, but will of course plant more for them to eat this
I am so happy to hear that you were published in this publication. What a thrill this is.

Lavender Cottage said...

Love the peony tulips, so pretty I think I may plant some this fall.
The squirrels were very naughty this spring, biting the heads off many of my tulips so I didn't get to enjoy them. Thanks for sharing yours Carolyn.
