    Those tulips are such a lovely colour, unusual too, I think…

  3. Murtagh's Meadow says:

    Such a lovely colour

  4. Alice says:

    The Tulips have kind of a wild attitude! Pretty with the Candytuft!

  5. Beautiful flowers and the contrast makes them even more interesting …

    Thank you for sharing πŸ™‚

  6. Isn’t this an unusual colour for tulips? Very pretty!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Maria. This is a class of hybrid tulips called Viridiflora, strong performers and well recommended. This one has returned several years for me.

  7. Anne says:

    A particularly attractive photograph this is!

  8. A wonderful color combination.

  9. Kris Peterson says:

    I’m envious again! I love striped tulips.

  10. Mike Powell says:

    Wow, Eliza. What a spectacular tulip! Are tulips still blooming now? Ours were gone a long time ago. We have finished off almost all irises and it seems to be the season for lilies.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Mike! We’re about two months behind you, I think. The tulips have gone by, our bearded iris are peaking, the Siberian iris just started, as did the peonies, which are a highlight in my gardening year.

      • Mike Powell says:

        Well, it sounds like you are definitely at least a month behind us for sure. We have moved a bit too quickly for my taste into summer-like weather–it has been hot and humid a lot.

      • Eliza Waters says:

        The humidity of the South is legendary. While we get a few hot and humid days, New England summers are generally quite pleasant. It makes up for our cold winters!

  11. Ohh so lovely! Thank you for sharing.

  12. Lovely color on the beautiful petals!πŸ™‚

    I love the gorgeous unpredictability of their petals and shape.

  14. Cathy says:

    Very pretty when open too, but the bud shape was really stunning.

  15. You grow the most beautiful flowers and so many varieties … WOW!

  16. Very Colorful Eliza! Great image!

  17. So pretty against the background of white flowers!

  18. Just as lovely open as budding. As pretty as the blooms are, I like the leaves with those nice edges.
