Tiptoe through the Tulips

Our yard is abloom with glorious color and it makes me SO happy!

I just love tulips! They have to be the perfect flower. You plant the bulbs once, and then they come up every year. Now that is my kind of yard work!

  2. Very nice!

    We moved into our home last summer, and there were some beautiful roses and other summer plants in bloom, but we've had a constant treat this Spring, by first daffodils and now tulips that we didn't know were there.

  5. Oh, I love these. I grew up in Michigan and spring was always waves of tulips. Now I live in the desert southwest with not a tulip for miles - with the exception of the flower counter at the local Safeway. But that's just not the same. Thanks for sharing. It made my night.

  20. Lovely tulips. You know they never appealed to me before this Spring and now it seems like I can't get enough of them. My kids are trying to figure out how many colours they can see of them.
    Nice PSF.
