Tulips


My tulips are in full flower,

A good 2 weeks early. The tulips this year are bigger than last.

Pretty in Pink.

Plum Perfect.

The unusually mild spring weather has continued from March. Temperatures way above average.
A red Chinese tree peony has gotten so big from a twig planted late last fall.

Grass has already been cut and gardens are prepped and weeded for planting. I won't be planting annuals yet.Tho I hear a garden center calling my name . Restraining myself until the end of April. Such will power!

Wow gorgeous tulips indeed. have you had lots of precipitation? Things are trying to get green here but it is a bit of struggle. For every day of rain we have four with none. Tricky for springtime!

Weather here tho warm we are not getting the rain that is usual , less snow this winter too , so our gardens are very dry.

Beautiful tulips, I wish I could get mine to grow so nice.

Yu certainly have a variety of colours in your tulips. Mine are just budding so it won't belong before they are open.
