TODAY'S FLOWERS # 344



These are the last of the tulip photographs that I took a couple of weeks ago when they were at their peak.












Luiz Santilli Jnr created Today's Flowers and asked me a few years ago to take over his role as host.  I was very happy to do so.  He occasionally pops in to say hello, so "Hello Luiz and thank you!"


Today's Flowers' home page can be found here.

They are wonderful! I see some Grape hyacinth hiding in there, too. I think my favorites are the last two pictures.

What a beautiful array of flowers. The tulip colours are lovely and I think I spotted snowdrops and possibly bluebells as well.
Thank you for sharing such beauty.

They are lovely. Ours are probably a week from starting to really show, though our Tulip Festival starts late this year as well, next weekend.

Very pretty. I have two dark purple tulips in flower in the front garden. I hope they survive the horrible weather.

Those cream colored tulips are beautiful. Getting ideas here for next year.

Hope you have fun with your tree. Connie was here today and we compared notes. She working on her dad's side.

Connie's MIL was born at the Ball House (where Ballston Metro is today), the family home of Martha Washington's birth family. This means her children have Rebels and Revolutionaries all over their tree.

Gosh Denise - these flowers are so beautiful.

Have a Beautiful Weekend!
Peace :)

Lovely tulips.

Liz Needle said...

Love the way your tulips have naturalised with the other bulbs. Too warm for tulips to do that here. Beautiful shots.

Karen @ Pieces of Contentment said...

These tulips are stunning, especially along with the other smaller bulbs. So delightful. It is autumn here, time to plant bulbs, yet there are tulips in flower for sale with Mothers Day coming. I stopped to enjoy them at the supermarket yesterday.....

Wonderful tulip photos and wonderful header!

Lui said...

Hi Denise!
I loooove those tulips!
I know I promised to update my blog but never got to doing it until today. I hope your Facebook is active now so can add you to mine. It is easier to update there from my phone and iPad.

Have a nice week and miss you!

Laura said...

Absolutely beautiful Denise… I love your header too!

Dan the Mountain Man said...

The Tulips look so beautiful. I thought I had more in my yard then it appear I have. I will have to add some I guess. First summer in the house so I am learning whet I have in the yard.

Debbie said...

These are such lovely, sweet tulips, Denise. I've been rather out of it lately. Too much happening all of a sudden. I can't seem to keep up.
