This little tulip was the first to open in the front of our house and a day or two later a second one popped up to join it.
The petals have a pastel red border than follows along the inside of each petal make it very nice on the eyes.
What’s really cool about our tulips is that they open during the day and close back up at night so I can watch them open again the next day.
Yellow And White Tulips
As these yellow and white tulips were showing off a red tulip was growing up behind them. I think it took about a week before it opened and tried to grab my attention.
I looked at the white and yellow tulips today and they are on their last legs. The wind and rains expected over the next three days will take all their petals I’m afraid but I will see them again next spring.
Bright Red Tulips And Even Tiger Tulips
Here is the red tulip that was creeping up behind the yellow/white tulips above. When he did get big enough to open he was spectacular. Love the brightly coloured tulips and some of my favourite tulips.
Still didn’t out shine the yellow and white group. A close second though.
It would be great to have them keep coming back all summer long but then we might not appreciate them as much as we do at our house.
Love the way it goes from a redish orange to yellow edged petals. Beautiful and another of my favourite tulips.
Looking close up it looks like it has been beaten and wrinkled but that’s the way they grow. A close up shows they have a very raggedy edge to the petals that I think is very cool.
Love Bright Yellow Tulips
When the bright yellow tulips open they add another level of coolness to our front yard. As much as I like the tulips that have gradient coloured petals or the two tone petals I have to say the pure colours make me the happiest.
I have been enjoying our tulips and a few others around Moncton. They started near the end of April and have been going ever since. It’s now the end of May.
Sadly this may be their lasts weekend as we are about to get a lot of heavy rain and strong winds. The tulips don’t do well with the wind. I am already looking forward to seeing them all again next spring.
Some Of The Tulips in Our Front Yard
We have lots of tulips in our spring home garden but there are no tulips in our backyard. That will be remedied come next fall when I will plant a couple of dozen more in the back yard.
