Tulips in Color

April12 374Since I received a couple of inquiries as to the color of the tulips in my last post, I thought I’d show what they look like in color. Tulipa ‘Purple Prince.’

    What a soft beautiful pink they are!

    The black and white was interesting, but I have to say the color one appeals to me a lot more. I think I like black and white when the situation lends to it, like snow against black trees or water. I may be generalizing too much, and reserve the right to make exceptions. Hahaha.

  7. Oh, they really look alive in color! I can hear them breathing! 🙂

    They are positively blushing!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Hi Liv, yes, they are! I’m hoping they didn’t get eaten by rodents this year. There’s been a chipmunk living in the stonewall, so I’m hoping it didn’t eat them over winter! Are you back?

  11. A beautifully composed photo, Eliza, but I love the softness of the living color. And yes, I hope the rodents left the alone for you to enjoy them once again this spring 😉

  12. So pretty – I love the hint of blush!

    So soft and subtle are these beautiful tulips.

    I know it’s a total cliche to say “kissed with color” but that’s exactly what those tulips look like to me. Beautiful.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, yes, I see what you mean. 🙂
      How’s your week been?

      • mk says:

        I am sitting next to a stack of 14 boxes labeled “CDs and DVDs”. How four large drawers can turn into 14 boxes, I don’t understand. The dining room is bulging with boxes of books. I have made 3 trips to Staples to buy 10-packs of those boxes to pack your paper work into. Things are looking up!

      • Eliza Waters says:

        Good going! You remind me that I need to do some spring cleaning. 😉 I take it the inspection went well?

      • mk says:

        Still waiting on the verdict. I sent you a long email.

  20. Thank you for stopping by my blog. You have so many awesome pics on yours!

    Beautiful water beads! That’s a really pretty variety of tulip. We can’t grow them where I live because the deer would eat them.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Yes, I have heard that. One year my sister had every bud disappear overnight – so disappointing, as they were so close to blooming. Rodents also will eat them underground. My ‘Green Wave’ parrot tulips were lost to voles. I’ve been pretty lucky overall, but these are right next to the house.

  22. Debra says:

    Wow. Just wow. I am speechless.

    I love them in colour 🙂 xxx
