    One of My Favs

    Tulips are one of my favorite flowers... probably number 2 behind Peonies.  Tulips last a lot longer than roses (at least the ones I buy) and my local grocery store sells them at a decent price so I can keep them in the house monthly (for as long as they are in season). ...

    I love them, they are so pretty. If a guy gave me a bunch, I'd love him forever....probably   :-) My oma loved them too. I like the fields of tulips in Holland, all the beautiful colors, lined up, blooming. What a delightful flower.(bulb)

    ~ lyrical ~

    here is a poem by Cicely Mary Barker that speaks so quaint of one of my favorite blooms... "Our stalks are very straight and tall, Our colors clear and bright; Too many-hued to name them all - Red, yellow, pink or white. And some are splashed, and some, maybe As dark as any plum...

    Mother Nature Has Favorites

    Over the weekend we had some major storms and damaging winds. Two 25 foot trees were knocked down in my yard, as well as several large limbs.  Not a single delicate petal was disturbed in my tulip bed. They stand proud and lovely on their skinny little stems.

    It was the first thing I planted in my city garden.  How big was my delight when in the spring they started to show up.  All of a sudden they were there, inches high hard green leaves peeking from the barren land, straight and stubborn in the late winter wind. ...

    My Favorite

    I love tulips. They're not a pretentious flower and are actually quite ordinary, but in their simplicity and elegance they are beautiful. When I have a homeΒ where I can have flowers, tulips will be the first flowers I plant.

    Since I Was Little

    Tulips have always been my favorite flower. I always loved them since I was a child. I used to doodle them in class and everything, lol. I would love to have a garden with some tulips one day.

    THE Early Shoots of Spring

    Tulips are my favorite springtime flower.  I love watching as the green shoots begin to show through the earth early in the spring and day by day they grow until one day a green bulb is formed.  Just as I am about to give up hope the green begins to open and there is a...
