Phlowers – Tulips

It’s tulip time at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania.

Tulips come in a wide array of colors and dazzle the eye in mass plantings in the Longwood garden beds.

This bright purple perfectly displays the “Vivid Violet” of today’s Color Your World – 120 Days of Crayola Challenge.

My favorites are the coral-pink variety.

They are beautiful planted in abundance, but I prefer to zoom in on a smaller group and enjoy the beauty of the sun’s rays shimmering through each petal.

    1. Thanks Susie, I just put in some geraniums in this color…although the label said salmon pink, I call them coral. Thanks for the good wishes for my sister…she is special to me. The tulips don’t last nearly long enough…a few weeks at most. I guess this is what makes them even more precious when they bloom. My neighbor has a gorgeous display in her front gardens this year. All beautiful and large with glowing colors. Tulip bulbs don’t last as long as daffodils…and after a few years will stop blooming. It’s good to plant a few bulbs every Autumn if you love them in the Spring. Have a happy day my friend.
