Tulips - need a bit of spring

It's been raining and cold a lot of late - not unusual here in Seattle. Still it can get a bit monotonous. It's time for a reminder of Spring. Here's pictures from last year's Skagit Valley Tulips! Enjoy.

Red tulips protected by Poplar trees
Just a touch of crimson
There's always one oddball in the field
Queen of the Night blooms against Golden Appledorn
Pink glory
This is a new as yet un-named variety on

Sunlight on an orange multi-tulip varietal
My favorite metal sculpture in RoozenGaarde's display garden
I love how the sunlight shines through
A field of crimson

  1. Pretty tulips! We are expecting rain today but we NEED it. I've never been successful with tulips. Not sure if it's the sandy soil(other people grow them) or something is getting the bulbs. My ornamental cherry is beginning to bloom.
