Springtime Tulips… my Garden

April 24, 2014

My Gardening Friends,

It’s been a long time since I last posted on my blog and I apologize for that and the lack of pictures. The need to help others and myself dominated the better part of these last 4 months. I’m glad and hopeful things are finally getting back to normal.

My garden is bursting with blossoms everywhere. All my hard work in planting bulbs last fall paid off. The tulips have just about finished their explosion of color and my peonies, irises and roses are gearing up for their beautiful display. Right now the Japanese Maples and azaleas are in their splendor (pics to follow in another post).

Here’s a peek of some of my tulips blooming in my garden this Spring….



Every year I plant this purple and pink combination ‘Strike Me Pink’ in this bed. These colors blend beautifully with my emerging JapMaples.






Pink and soft yellow tulips ‘Pillow Talk’.



I love the combination of maroon ‘Queen of Knight’ with the lovely white ‘Maureen’.





White daffodil- ‘Thalia’




Snowflake-‘Gravetye Giant’


Daffodil- ‘Hawera’








Lovely ‘Angelique’- my favorite tulip.



Till my next post…..hope you enjoyed!
