Who doesnt like a tulip….just a few photos……

The last two look very much like parrot, looking forward to seeing how they turn out…..have been very happy with the way all these have performed this year, just mixed colours, nothing fancy! many bought at the last minute!!

Your tulips do seem to be smiling back at you...
I planted the parrot ones last year, they seem to take a longer time to open and colour up.

Some beautiful colours there :)

I love them all. I really love seeing them all mixed colours together. I think I prefer them like that...which is totally unlike mine, which are all red together and white at the back. Oh well...next year!

I love the mixed colours too,Angela..I'm definitely going to have a lot more Tulips next year..sadly,most of mine are finished already :o(

Tulips look so good from their first peek out as buds, then they colour and always look so strong and proud. Beautiful.

Oh really? Well..I always loved Rachels too and hers were all mix and match as well. They are stunning flowers. I never used to be very interested in them, but the last 10 years or so I have fallen in love with them. :)

I love the fact that with careful selecting you can have a succession of tulips from mid feb through to late may.
I like to keep colours together in clumps but have different clumps close by to each other.

these are lovely DD2

I am beginning to think tulips are like a fine wine, you don't really appreciate them until you get to a certain age!!(*˘︶˘*).。*♡

I'm sure you are right, DD....quite a group of us have shown our increasing love for them.

The colour s are really lovely. I shall be planting some for next Spring as I haven't any now in my garden.

I love to see an array of tulips in any gardens, I start off planting my colours in groups but I don't always remove them, naturally I never think to look back at my photo's to see which colours are planted and the positions so if I add new ones I often have a mixture , lol, I don't mind though as long as they produce flowers..

So colourful, and just where I like them : in the garden and not in a vase! Although having said that a large bunch from Lidl's looked great all together with some extra greenery.

I love all tulips Dotty , but with moving house last November , the ones I dug up didn't go in the garden until after Christmas and there have been no flowers at all !
Yours are stunning !

Rose, thank you very much, you will be able to plan your tulips better now that you have settled in your new home....
Eirlys I prefer my flowers in the garden too......unless someone buys me a bouquet!!(•‿•)
Linda we tend to have the majority in pots, and only a few planted in the borders...
Marjories pleased you liked them, so many to chose from!!

Lovely display of colourful tulips DD. What a lovely Easter we have just had. Sunday was fantastic. Clear blue sky all day and just the right temperature too here in Essex. Our tulips ran through fast.

Hi Dorjac, hasn't the weather been fantastic this Easter, a tad too hot to attempt heavy gardening, the tulips are fading fast here too!!
