It’s tulip time around Casa Radiance!! Last week one tulip opened – now a lot of them. These are all the early and mid season tulips.
Seeing these makes me SO HAPPY!!!
This is a double tulip. It looks almost like a rose. Monte Carlo:
When it’s sunny, these open way up like this. They are very fragrant, too. I paired them with the Christmas Marvel:
Who says pink and yellow don’t go together?
Then the Pink Impression – these are very tall.
The fritillaria. I really like these, but the bulbs are expensive and they are finicky. 3 planted, one came up. Same as last year. Not buying any more. This plant was a big hit with the garden club that met at my house today.
More hyacinths opened up:
I planted alliums for the first time and they have sent up buds. I can’t wait to see these (and show them to you)!
I did my tippy pot demonstration for the garden club. It’s too early for the annuals to be ready for planting (other than pansies), so these are empty. I have a set of plastic ones in the front and the terracotta ones on the side.
So cool! I can’t wait until these are full of flowers. I actually might take the pots off and paint them first. ’Cause I need another project…
No time this weekend, though. Beautiful weather on tap and I feel a bike binge coming on!
