What’s Blooming! Pssst…. it’s tulips!

Posted May 03 2013 4:07pm

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!  big grin
