Tulips Everywhere

                                                                       Good Morning!
                                                  It is tulip season in our garden now as well
                                                 as around Charlottetown so I hope you
                                                 enjoy these spring beauties!

                                      Although, orange is not usually a part of our garden,
                                     in the spring I love the pop of color they add in a couple
                                     of  our borders.

                                                 This year Charlottetown hosted a Tulip Festival
                                                 and planted thousands of tulips around the city
                                                 last fall for it. These are a few of the photos I
                                                 took around the city a few days ago.

A beautiful front yard garden in the city.

                                                      Vanco has fields of beautiful tulips
                                                      that are grown for the bulbs. They sell tulip
                                                     bouquets all around the Maritimes and beyond
                                                     starting in January each year.
                                                      The above photos were shot a week ago and
                                                      the pics below were last years.

                  I am going out to deadhead my daffodils now as their season is past.
                            The apple trees are in bloom here now and soon it will be lilac time!

                                                                            Thank you for popping by and
                                                                            I hope you have a great day!

Tulips? What tulips? LOL!

Those tulips have given my spirit a lift today! Thank you for sharing.

It is amazing how you know the timetable of what will bloom when and how. I would think your lilacs would come earlier. Of course it is your peonies that come along and crown everything after that! Your garden is a constant production to be applauded.

I have never seen fields of tulips! Your flowers are beautiful and I love the way you display. Love the sloshers as well as the watering can and planters. What a beautiful landscape.

Oh my these are gorgeous photos of the tulips in PEI. So many!! I didn't realize Charlottetown had a tulip festival. It must have been nice to see. And now I know why Vanco grows all those tulips. It's for the bulbs. Good to know. :)

I just recently did a photoshoot of tulips in my boots as well...such a great idea, I might add! Enjoy your weekend!
